Traditional string instruments from the Middle East

Jawa Manla plays the oud and is considered one of Syria's greatest musical talents. At a young age she toured as a professional musician through Egypt, Lebanon, Oman and Turkey. She has performed with renowned orchestras, received lessons from the greatest oud players and has won several prizes.

In 2015, Jawa's family was forced to flee Syria. Jawa resolved not to sit still and took every opportunity to introduce the Netherlands to the rich Syrian culture. Shaza Manla is Jawa's younger sister and plays the qanoun.
