Free Syria

More than 250,000 Syrians have lost their lives in four-and-a-half years of armed conflict, which began with anti-government protests before escalating into a full-scale civil war. More than 11 million others have been forced from their homes as forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad and those opposed to his rule battle each other – as well as jihadist militants from so-called Islamic State.

For refugees, and the people of Syria, I made this mix of spoken arabic songs and Middle Eastern beats. You can donate to Syrian refugees by visiting this page.

The lush downtempo sounds of Thievery corporation, the Turkish sounds of Dzihan & Kamien, the Algerian words of Rachid Taha, Omar Souleyman, a Syrian vocalist playing dabke and# sounds from Egypt, Lebanon and Pakistan can be heard through this mix dedicated to @FreeSyria !
