The Refugees for Refugees Band is a band of 10 musicians who are refugees in Belgium and come from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Tibet.

After the ’Amerli’ CD-release in may 2016, 10 of the musicians that took part at the recordings created a band. Under the artistic direction of Tristan Driessens, these virtuoso performers created a common repertoire that reveals the talents and cultural treasures that have become virtually invisible in Belgium and builds bridges between the musicians and the different traditions they represent, in order to produce perfomances that are rich, innovative and a mark of diversity and cultural exchange.
