Music Without Borders

The Cultural Frontline

Music is a language without borders but what does it mean to those who’ve had to cross borders to survive? Rihab Azar, a classical oud player from Syria, Yasmin Kadi, an Afrobeat singer from Sierra Leone, and Tabrae, an underground hip-hop artist from Iran, are three talented, young musicians forced to leave their home countries.

With some help from award winning music producer Chad Hobson, the three come together for a Cultural Frontline special, not only to share their experiences, but to write an original piece of music to tell their collective story.
