When his piano is destroyed in the Syrian war, pianist and composer Ayham Ahmad continues to make music of resistance now as a refugee in Germany. This is his incredible story.
Ayham Ahmad - The Pianist of Yarmouk
After becoming an icon of resistance against the Assad regime during the war in Syria, pianist Ayham Ahmad must flee to Germany once his piano was destroyed.
Ahmad sings and plays pieces that discourse on detachment and death while playing an out-of-tune piano. His music vindicates his people's desire for freedom and reminds us of the power of music to represent the yearnings of peoples worldwide.
