On the outskirts of war-torn Damascus, a man pushes his piano into the street and begins to play; an act of defiance that will become a beacon of hope and resistance for the people of Syria. Accompanied by a spellbinding live performance, Aeham Ahmad shares his extraordinary story of the healing power of music in the face of despair which serves as a timely reminder of the importance of not turning your back on creativity and culture in times of crisis. He talks – and sings – to international correspondent Lyse Doucet.
