Since his arrival in Germany Aeham Ahmad performed countless concerts in various German cities such as Berlin, Bonn, Munich, Leipzig, Berlin, Cologne and Stuttgart and convinced with the intensity and virtuosity of his performances, in which he played besides Beethoven and Mozart mainly original compositions and traditional songs. In Munich he performed on the concert “Stars say thank you” for refugee helpers with Sportfreunde Stiller, Judith Holofernes and Herbert Grönemeyer.

Aeham Ahmads history shows that Beethoven’s desire for freedom and his faith in the power of music have not lost their significance to the present day.

Many consider him mad, some always thought so. People are hungry, and he plays music. But it’s more than that, it’s the principle, therefore, that he simply refuses this war, the domination of death and violence that he holds on to what man is in his best moments: sensitive to beauty. And for his next of kin. He is an artist in the best sense.
