« La guerre a commencé dans mon pays en 2011. Dès lors, faire de la musique n’était plus un choix : c’était devenu vital et essentiel pour accepter et exprimer les sentiments intenses de perte et de tristesse que je ressentais devant la souffrance de mon peuple et la destruction de mon pays. Je me souviens que par un après-midi d’été particulièrement chaud à Londres, je regardais les informations sur la Syrie. À ce moment-là, je me suis senti accablée, comme si j’allais exploser, alors j'ai pris mon qānūn et c’est ainsi que “Syrian dreams” est sorti de moi. C'est le tout premier morceau que j’ai écrit… »  “The war started in my homeland in 2011. From that point on making music was no longer a choice, it was a crucial means to express and come to terms with intense feelings of loss and sadness from seeing my people suffer and my land destroyed. On a hot summer’s afternoon in London in 2012 I was watching the news. At the time I felt overwhelmed, as if I was going to explode, so I held my qānūn and ‘Syrian dreams’ came out of me. That was the very first piece of music I wrote.”
