The Kiwan's Family- from their Living room to yours
Time & Location
About the Event
For the opening of this year’s festival, we join the Kiwan Family from their cozy living room in London as they perform a selection of modern and traditional songs from the Syrian and Levantine heritage.
Although the four musicians have been performing across the UK since leaving Syria, lockdown does not seem to get in the way between the Kiwan Family and their adoring audience. Father, Osama Kiwan (vocalist and oud player) and mother, Eleen Hilal (vocalist and music & Samah Sufi dance teacher) will sing alongside their son, Hatem (vocalist, pianist, violist, and composer) and their daughter, Hanen (vocalist, percussionist, and clarinetist) as they all take us on a journey filled with oriental rhythms and melodies.
Let’s just hope they don’t wake the baby up!
