A musical perspective on the Syrian crisis

Kinan Azmeh is a world renowned clarinetist. He plays in Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble and he’s a musical ambassador for the UN’s What Does it Take” campaign. It’s goal is to draw attention to Syria’s four year-long civil war. We talked with Azmeh about his life growing up in Damascus, his career and why putting a stop to war in Syria is his current life’s mission. He also performed for us in WBEZ’s Jim and Kay Mabie Performance Studio. (Photo: Facebook/Kinan Azmeh)
