Munich ~ Almere

Eva is 23 years old and she is in Europe little more than a year. She currently lives in the city of Munich in Germany and she is learning the language. She works in the theatre.
In Syria, she used to have violin lessons of Amer Shanati. Eva says herself that she can’ t look at the violin nor touch it, as it hurts her heart too much. She now sings alone at night. One day she hopes to become an engineer and a singer.

Larissa and Melanie (14 and 15 years old, both from Almere, The Netherlands) received Eva’s Musical Postcard. They thought that Eva’s song sounded very hopeful. The two Dutch girls, both singers themselves, chose to compose a piece called ‘Leave Behind’ for The Stolz Quartet, and added a particular vocal part in it. The composition is about leaving your country when it’s unsafe, and has an empowering message: “Somewhere, closer then we know, there shines a star so bright it can light up the whole world.”

Eva Hammoud
