Maya Youssef Qanun Concert

As part of ‘Celebrating Syria' Festival 2018, on 11 October 2018, Syrian artist, Maya Youssef presented a night of music with Qanun (the Arabic 78-string zither) at the Royal Northern College of Music.

Maya’s unique and innovative approach expanded her audiences to international platforms. She combined her extraordinary musical gifts with a generosity of outlook, warmth, humour and optimism. She was accompanied by Elizabeth Nott, (percussion) and Barney Morse-Brown (cello).

It was an enthralling evening where East met West and the classical met the improvised.
