Tanjaret Daghet is derived from the Arabic term for a pressure pot, which in essence, expresses the sentiment on a social level, which the youth of the world are facing at this very moment.
From the heart of Syria, from the soul of authentic towns across the country, from the epicenter of a struggle, three musicians come together with one mission... it is ‘Tanjaret Daghet’.
