A "piano prodigy" from Jordan will use his musical talents to advocate for some of the world's most marginalized children, particularly those caught in conflict, violence and poverty.

Zade Dirani was this week appointed Regional Ambassador for the Middle East and North Africa by the UN Children's Fund (UNICEF).

The pianist and composer said he firmly believes that music is a powerful tool for peace and co-existence.

Mustafa Al Gamal asked Mr Dirani why he accepted the nomination.
