Musical Postcards connected young displaced musicians to young musicians who are part of the Amsterdam Grachtenfestival (Canal Festival), a classical music festival that takes place every year in several venues in Amsterdam.
The talented Ahmad Al Khatib sent his Musical Postcard on the ud and received an energetic answer by Lip Stick Percussion Duo. Ahmad lives in the Alaadeen Refugee Camp near Homs with his three brothers and his parents. All of them are very musical. He hopes to be on stage one day with his ud teacher. But for now he is offered a stage online with Lip Stick Percussion Duo.
