Concert - Assef Salloom from Syria and Sean Magavu from Zimbabwe

Assef Salloom came to Poland in the spring of 2013, escaping war-torn Syria with his family. He is a man of many talents. In 2015, he was recognized as the best foreign student in doctoral studies in Poland. He speaks 7 languages, teaches languages ​​at the university, runs his own educational centre for children and the Center for Arabic Language and Culture in Lublin, and he's also a musician.

A small group of students from different countries decided to form a band that would allow them to present their talents in another country. This is how The Helping Hand was born. Most of the band members came from countries where music and other art forms are not supported by institutions like Chatka Żaka, so they were very excited to finally be able to perform live regularly. Their concerts are a real volcano of energy. They are the echo of the pandemic and their goal is to unleash the smiles hidden under the masks. They will make you cry with laughter.
