The qanun is a traditional Syrian 78 stringed plucked zither. A virtuoso on the qanun, Maya’s unique and innovative approach to playing the instrument has expanded her audiences to international platforms. She combines her extraordinary musical gifts with a generosity of warmth, humour and optimism.

“The act of playing music is the opposite of death, it’s a life and hope affirming act. To me, music is my own healer and an antidote to what’s happening, not only in Syria, but in the whole world… my music brings people back to humanity and to their heart centres, where no harm can be done to any form of life and where all can exist together in peace.”
Maya Youssef
Born in Damascus into a family of writers and artists, Maya has performed all over the world and is the winner of the Exceptional Talent Award which enabled her to migrate to the UK in early 2012. Maya’s debut album ‘Syrian Dreams’ came out in November 2017 and she is currently researching “Music Healing for Syrian Refugee Children” as her PhD project at SOAS University of London, where she is also teaching the qanun and directing the SOAS Middle Eastern Ensemble. Maya is a regular on the BBC and was featured at the BBC Proms at The Royal Albert Hall amongst other prestigious venues and festivals.
