Riyad Nicolas is one of the most exciting musicians to emerge from the Middle East, praised by no less a figure than Daniel Barenboim for his talent and musical sensitivity.

Through his music, he is committed to raising awareness of the plight of the Syrian people and has performed for international organisations including the UN's refugee agency, the UNHCR, and the International Rescue Committee.
