Meeting with artists of Syrian Expat Philharmonic Orchestra
Currently living in Bremen, Jazbeh – a former Damascus symphonic orchestra musician – had an idea in 2015 to establish a band together with his friends who, when the military conflict in Syria began, found shelter in Germany, Belgium, Holland, France and other countries of the European Union. In their home country they belonged to the elite, they were virtuosos in orchestras in Damascus and Aleppo, but politics and the civil war forced them to abandon their lives and become refugees overnight. Many of them paid for this with depression, lost social prestige, homesickness. SEPO has become their new musical family.
