Suitcase Stories

"After the war broke out in Syria, did I realize, that what I really loved the most is music. And this is the only thing that no one can take away from me."

I was proud and honored to be a part of the nation's very first Syria Fest, which took place in Washington, D.C., in August 2017. Bringing together people from all over the world, the mission of Syria Fest is to introduce people to the lively culture, delicious foods, and long-standing traditions of Syria.
