Shalan Alhamwy, violinist and composer Simon Blackley

In 2015, the Syrian civil war forced violinist Shalan Alhamwy and his family into a perilous journey of exile. Alhamwy says "I cannot face a tank with my violin, but music is a way to say no to war." On Tuesday's Performance Today, hear Shalan Alhamwy's "Two Images from Aleppo," from a concert in Cologne, Germany.
