W07 A Kurdish/German Musical Rendezvous
Merchiston Workshops - Workshop Space
In 2015 many refugees left their native countries of lraq, Iran and Syria to find shelter in Germany - leaving behind almost everything, but bringing with them their wonderful music traditions. Harpist Tom Daun and Saher and Azad, two Kurdish refugee musicians, soon decided to form a trio and have played a lot of concerts since. In their workshops they will talk about their friendship, their work and their music.
