The Qasyoun Trio was formed by three young Syrian musicans in exile. These three young musicians want to uphold the rich musical heritage of their home country while also exploring ways to combine traditional and contemporary music. The sisters Shaza (qanun) and Jawa Manla (oud) being two of the greatest musical talents of Syria of their generation. After finally settling in The Netherlands they picked up music once again and very soon started to be recognized as extraordinary musicians. In combination with the fine percussionist Modar Salama they are performing in concerts and festivals throughout The Netherlands and abroad.
