Songs For Syria

  • The 1909 1909 Topanga Cyn. Blvd. Topanga, CA, 90290 (map)

A Fundraising event in aid of the Syrian Refugee Crisis.

Our mission is to raise awareness and provide support as well as education to this absolutely devastating crisis. We have researched and connected with six different charities that greatly impact the victims of this crisis. Through the power of music, dance, and compassion, we inspire to create an evening of unity aiding relief to the refugees of Syria.

We have carefully selected a group of master musicians, dancers, and speakers who not only share our vision of peace and unity, but have greatly impacted both our lives as well as our artistic journey.
The evening will be filled with beautiful sounds and dance of the Middle East, Africa, and beyond. There will also be delicious gourmet cuisine and refreshing beverages.
