Maya Youssef Finding Home Digital

Maya Youssef sets out to explore the range of the qanun, with dramatic results. Exiled from Syria, she’s engaged in “a spiritual search for what means home,” and on this daring, emotional set she matches the 78-stringed Middle Eastern zither against synths, acoustic bass and strings, with her musical influences ranging from the Middle East to funk and jazz.
