British Solidarity for Syria Presents
Malek Jandali in Concert
Born in Germany to Syrian parents in 1972, award-winning composer and pianist, Malek Jandali, is recognised as a leading figure in today's piano world. His outstanding recordings and extensive concert tours receive abundantly glowing praise. His musical career as a concert pianist began in 1988, after winning the first prize at the National Young Artists competition followed by the 1997 Outstanding Musical Performer Award.
Jandali is the first Arab musician to arrange the oldest music notation in the world, which was featured in his 2008 album Echoes from Ugarit. In 2011, he was the recipient of the Freedom of Expression award for his song Watani Ana I am my Homeland, as well as his activism in the Arab Spring movement for human rights and democracy.
His latest album "Emessa" includes original compositions recorded with The Russian Philharmonic Orchestra. The music was inspired by the 2011 historic Syrian uprising and courageous stand of the people against brutality and inhumanity.
To see Jandali perform live from London book out the 6th of May in your diaries for an evening of enriching, splendid and heart warming music. The performance will be followed by an auction featuring pieces from his mother and fathers’ home that was brutally attacked by the Assad regime in Homs mid last year.
This event is organised by British Solidarity for Syria (BSS) in aid of Syria Relief (UK registration number 1143797).
