Maya Youssef: Finding Home

Maya Youssef is hailed as ‘queen of the qanun’, the
78-stringed Middle Eastern plucked zither.

Maya’s intense and thoughtful music is rooted in the Arabic
classical tradition but forges pathways into jazz, Western classical, and flamenco styles. It explores the emotional and healing qualities of music. For her, the act of playing music is a life and hope affirming act, and an antidote to what is happening, not only in Syria, but across the world.

Her latest tour Finding Home is a journey through
memories and the essence of home both within and without. The music, deep and visceral, explores the full sonic textures of the qanun and Maya will be accompanied by the same musicians who recorded the album.

The music from her latest album of the same name is about
finding that place of peace, that place of softness, comfort, and healing which manifests in everyone in a unique way from finding home in nature to the people who make us feel that sense of relief and peace.

The album Finding Home is supported by Arts
Council England
and PRS Women Make Music Award.
