Lena Chamamyan - Oror (Yalla tnam)





Lena Chamamyan was born in Damascus and sees herself as a singer and songwriter focusing on unity, "with the Syrian people." "We should support each other," she said in an interview. She has also worked on a project, the goal of which was to make traditional Syrian folk songs more widely available.

There is much to feel in the individual voice of an instrument, then add the spice the player brings - what appears to be a splendid piece of finger harp - not forgetting the grace of the human voice of course
