Syrian artist Omar Souleyman has announced a new run of shows, looking to raise funds for refugees fleeing his home country.

The Four Tet collaborator will be visiting Los Angeles, New York, Europe and Dubai in the coming months and has revealed his intentions, along with promoters, to provide financial support for those affected by the current refugee crisis.

A "letter to Syria" reads: "Began in March 2013 at SXSW with a little help from many friends, all future Omar Souleyman shows dedicate to help Syrian people fleeing to a better life elsewhere.

"Omar Souleyman is a refugee himself, but not an exilee, alone providing for a family of 30. Together with all willing promoters of his shows he conspires to raise funds to aid the refugees in flight from Syrian situation.

"We are working with a number of charities but focusing on those directly providing urgent medical care to those in need during their long, difficult and dangerous passage to a life they dream of."
