“Music provides space – space to think, space to feel, space to breathe. In essence, I see music as a reminder of what is good and beautiful in life, because it can be difficult to remember sometimes. It helps us to truly live, not just stay alive.” – Nilli Tayidi

This Daily Joy performance is part of From the Top’s Musicians with Disabilities Special Initiative. Throughout the month of March 2023, From the Top is spotlighting young disabled and/or neurodivergent musicians who will share their talents and tell their stories in their own words.
