Syrian Store Tries to Keep Traditional Music Alive
In his small shop in Damascus, he keeps rare songs from the glorious past and snippets of the biographies of forgotten artists.
He also collects biographies of the Arab world’s greatest singers, which he makes available to people who want to learn about the glory days of Arab music.
This multimedia piece was produced during an IWPR workshop for young Syrian journalists held in Damascus, November 2009.
