Maya Youssef conceived Syrian Dreams as an act of healing and an affirmation of hope after a “personal journey through six years of war in Syria.” A virtuoso of the qanun, the Arabic 78-stringed plucked zither, she’s accompanied by cello, oud and percussion on a set of great poise and delicacy, demonstrating a web of sympathetic parts working together as one. A Top of the World in #134.
