Of Roads and Homes is a moving audio/video orchestral performance composed by legendary Syrian musician, Kinan Abou-Afach, and performed by the Al Bustan Ensemble. The piece is Abou-Afach’s response to the displacement of nearly 12 million Syrians in the past eight years. It is a meditation on themes of home, exile and displacement in the past and present alike, and well beyond the Middle East.
