Each guest on our new album REFUGE has a very interesting story to tell. Imad R Altaha @imadraltah is a well-known Iraqi violinist who has performed throughout Iraq and the Arabian Gulf region. Imad is a master of Turkish, Iraqi Kurdish, Southern Iraqi and Gulf Styles of playing. While living in Iraq, Imad was forced to perform for under threat of execution and he later found himself threatened by religious extremists who found his music offensive and bombed his home when he tried to return to Iraq. Imad and his wife and three children, are currently political refugees who first fled to the United Arab Emirates, and are now resettled in the United States awaiting a green card after 6 years of vetting with the @usaforunhcr . .

#JHMArtist | Jung-Hsuan Ko | @cellokoko
From Taiwan 🇹🇼 Been in the States for 9 years
Hiii I am Jung-Hsuan Ko. People know me as Rachel or most of my friends call me “Ko”(my last name). When I was 8, my music class asked us to choose an instrument in order to form an orchestra. My mom suggested cello because she said I get to sit whenever I practice or perform (She knows I am lazy!) I think it was very convincing so I listened to her 😛 I play the piano too because of the same reason hahaa
As I gradually realized my passion for playing the cello, I decided to come to New York to study when I was 18. I met so many good friends and young talented musicians who kept on inspiring me while studying at Manhattan School of Music, the Juilliard School and the New England Conservatory. I love sharing music with more and more people.
This is my nine year in the States and I am excited to join the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra in September as their assistant principle cello. I can’t wait to start the new chapter at ISO!
Fun Fact: I love snow and like to step on them. I also like traveling, swimming, and taking naps💁♀️
