Maya Youssef

Duration 15 mins

St Ethelburga is a small church that was renovated following an IRA bomb in the early 1990s. It has a beautiful, reflective Islamic style entrance gate and garden. Qunan-player Maya Youssef, who is originally from Syria, will play a solo concert of Arabic music and her own songs. The Qunan, which resembles a zither, is one of the world’s oldest musical instruments. The church is now an international Centre for Peace and Reconciliation that sits at the intersection of climate and peace.

St Ethelburga’s work sits at the intersection of climate and peace. We believe there can be no peace on Earth unless we also realise peace with Earth.
