Welcome To DanDana, a show through which we discover and share remarkable sounds across time and borders, travelling from Andalusia to Mongolia and from Yemen to Anatolia. Each episode will explore a new theme or place and illustrate the musical links which stretch across the region. Hosted by Yamen Mekdad, Christina Hazboun and Emily Sarsam, we are 3 friends with roots in the Middle East and branches in London, eager to share our passion for music and learnings which we gain along this journey.
