Composer and pianist Malek Jandali was one of the first Syrian artists to support the uprising and publically speak out against the regime. He’s been using his music to highlight the humanitarian crisis in his homeland. Through an international benefit tour called “The Voice of the Free Syrian Children”, he’s hoping to put the spotlight on the millions of children who’ve been affected by the ongoing conflict.
