No-land Bands is a series of musical events that dissolve geographical and musical boundaries. Each session introduces the music of one region in the Middle East, and a group of five to seven performers from different nationalities and with diverse musical backgrounds will perform. In 2016 and 2017 we dedicated our programs to the crisis in Syria and did a series of event in New York City and neighboring states titled " A journey to Aleppo" .

The musical experience will be accompanied by a visual journey as well. Through this setting, a triangular relationship between audience, musicians, and places is being shaped. The musical and visual experience will literally put the audience in those places, transforming their understanding of a specific geographical location. These short journeys will take away all the abstraction and numbness of what we hear on everyday news, and replace it with a humane and tangible experience.
