The sound of hope: An orchestra amid the rubble

Mohammed Mahmood is a Mosul-based musician. Amid the turmoil following the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003, he was robbed of the chance to perform. Today, though, Mohammed and his orchestra hold regular rehearsals amid the rubble of the Old town of Mosul. People come from cities many kilometers away to play with and learn from him.
