“She plays as revolution, she plays as rejuvenation, she plays for peace, she plays to heal and she plays to remember.” Outline Magazine 

Damascus-born Maya Youssef is hailed as ‘the queen of the qanun’, a traditional Syrian 78-stringed plucked zither. Based on Arabic musical traditions, her innovative sound has echoes of everything from jazz to flamenco, infused with warmth, humour and optimism. She described her debut album ‘Syrian Dreams’ as her “personal journey through six years of war in Syria. I see the act of playing music as the opposite of death; it is a life and hope-affirming act. 

Maya has performed widely around the world, including at the BBC Proms, and is a winner of Arts Council England’s Exceptional Talent award and Songlines’ Newcomer Music Award 2018.

Tony Kofi leads an all-star band celebrating Miles Davis’ highly innovative ‘Kind of Blue’ album, featuring the original numbers and some of the band’s own compositions inspired by it.

More than a milestone in jazz ‘Kind of Blue’ is a defining document of twentieth century music, one of those rare, influential works of art that achieve popularity among musicians, critics and the public alike. Even if you’ve never owned this classic album you’ll instantly recognise ‘So What’, ‘Freddie Freeloader’, ‘Blue in Green’, ‘All Blues’ and ‘Flamenco Sketches’ as old friends.
