ASYLUM was launched by Dash Arts at London’s Courtyard Theatre as a response to Brexit and anti-migrant rhetoric. Working with locally acclaimed producers The People’s Lounge, ASYLUM Portsmouth aims to increase the exposure, skills, aspirations and employability of the talented refugee musicians who now call Portsmouth home.
ASYLUM will be headlined by a live performance from the phenomenal Syrian kanun player, Maya Youssef مايا يوسف, winner of the Exceptional Talent Award and recent star of the BBC Proms at The Royal Albert Hall.
Supported by Portsmouth Festivities and Portsmouth Guildhall
