"Celebrated cellist Karim Wasfi performs a site-specific musical composition for those affected by the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and the 9/11 attacks. The former conductor of Iraq's Symphony Orchestra gained international recognition after taking his cello out into the streets of Baghdad, in a deliberate act of resistance, and giving improvised performances at the sites of recent car bombs. Wasfi discusses his experience in cultural diplomacy and shares how he uses music for healing, cross-cultural integration, de-radicalization and counterterrorism." - 9/11 Memorial & Museum website.
