Under Damascus Sky - Ismail Hakki & Rachid Jalal – 1934, 60’
Silent movie with live music by Kinan Azmeh & Kyle Sanna

Especially for Moussem Cities, clarinetist Kinan Azmeh and guitar player Kyle Sanna will perform a live soundtrack for the silent movie Under Damascus Sky, a gem of early Middle Eastern cinema. The movie combines zany spectacle, quaint humor, and visual art in an innovatively abstract way, with a clear surrealist influence. Kinan Azmeh has appeared worldwide as a soloist, composer and improviser. His utterly distinctive sound across different musical genres is now fast gaining international recognition.
