A Musical Refuge: Salute to Dreamer, Immigrant, and Refugee Resistance @ Islamic Cultural Center of Northern California
Jan 27 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

With the current political atmosphere, rising xenophobia, the Muslim Ban, and the repealing of DACA, we at Zawaya feel that fostering solidarity between the Bay Area’s diverse communities is now more important than ever.  For this reason, we have reached out to our good friends Vukani Mawethu and San Jose Taiko as well as our new collaborator La Peña Community Chorus to plan a multicultural inter-community concert celebrating Immigrants, Refugees, and Dreamers.  This concert will be free and take place at the ICCNC on January 27th, 2018.
