Oud Time with Rihab was the 2nd event of Celebrating Syria Festival 2020. The event took place on 5 December 2020. Rihab played some Arabic music, told us a bit about her journey with the oud and talked us through photos of oud-making steps she witnessed in her own dad's workshop in Syria (luthier Samir Azar).
The highlight of Celebrating Syria Festival 2019 was Saad Hajo’s special exhibition “ To See or Not to See: That is the Question... Ignorance is Bliss”, which took place at NIAMOS Manchester between 2 and 9 November. The exhibition was a cry against violence, and oppression and against the world’s indifference.
