Malek Jandali, the award-winning Syrian composer and pianist, is coming to London bringing with him a Glimmer of Hope for the Syrian people!
Jandali is the first Arab musician to arrange the oldest music notation in the world, which was featured in his 2008 album "Echoes from Ugarit". He was the recipient of the 2011 "Freedom of Expression" award in Los Angeles for his song "Watani Ana - I am my Homeland", as well as his activism in the Arab Spring movement for human rights and democracy. In 2012, he was recognized in New York City with the Arab-American Cultural Achievement Award. Mr. Jandali was honored to be the first Syrian ever to receive the 2013 GUSI Peace Prize for his dedication to peace and humanitarian causes.
His latest album "Emessa - Homs" includes original compositions recorded with The Russian Philharmonic Orchestra. The music was inspired by the people of Syria and their noble quest for freedom and human rights. His causes go beyond those of humanitarian activism, as he is regularly recognized by and invited to speak to key academic audiences at Harvard University, Rutgers University, Fordham University the United Nations headquarters in New York City, and was recently on the panel of The Doha Debates at Georgetown University in Qatar.
The event will include beautiful music by Jandali and an auction. All proceeds from the event will be going towards the prosthetic limbs project for Syrian children.
Book now for an inspiring evening for all the family!
