Project Description

It was a great pleasure and honour to perform a mixed program of Arabic songs and Qawali (Sufi songs in Urdu) with legendary Qawal Mahod Sabri and multi-instrumentalist Abdurrazaqq Schwarz at the Flüchtlingsheim in Fehrbelliner Platz, a massive 5 story quad building with a courtyard the size of a football field, housing hundreds of refugees.
