Sounds Beyond the Border

In this video, Evrim Hikmet Öğüt presents interviews with Syrian musicians living and working in Istanbul. Taken from the larger ‘Sounds Beyond the Border’ project, the video seeks to understand experiences of migration through music. The interviews open perspectives on the permanence and transience of life in displacement, the complexities of belonging and relationships between communities, the problems of everyday performance and the dreams of futurity and a common cultural world.
