Al-Sham: A Night for Syria

  • The Markaz 5998 W Pico Blvd Los Angeles, California 90035 (map)

The Markaz in Los Angeles is participating with the Global Week 4 Syria (organized out of Beirut) that takes place across the world in April—a movement for peace led by hundreds of musicians, artists, creatives, and intellectuals standing for peace and making a difference in the present and future of Syria. Through music, art, and culture, Global Week For Syria brings to life the possibility that Syria would once again take its place as a beacon of rich culture, deep history, and unwavering hope for human compassion and understanding.

We present an evening devoted to Syria, on Saturday, April 2nd, 8 pm (doors 7:30), featuring live traditional Syrian music on oud and percussion with Naser Musa, along with co-authors Robin Yassin-Kassab and Leila Al-Shaimi presenting their major new book, "Burning Country," plus Syrian American spoken word artist Omar Offendum. The evening includes a light buffet, the cover is $20, seating is limited, RSVPs required.
