Join Naima and musical guests as she shares her experience about working with incarcerated women in San Francisco County Jail and grapples with the questions, “What are the borderlands in our lives that mark ‘free’ and ‘unfree’? What are the ways that music and art can restore and transform lives and communities?”
This will be a special night as Naima will also be launching a fundraising campaign for her album and music project titled borderlands that envisions the power of music as a way to intervene on isolation and confinement of the incarcerated and beyond.
Naima Shalhoub is a soul-stirring songstress, actress, musician and educator. With a passion to sing freedom songs and uplift the spirit, her multicultural upbringing, background in community organizing and postcolonial anthropology, and music study has paved the way to build a creative life revolving around creating music that speaks to the contradictions in life--the joys, sorrows and spaces between. In May 2014 she began facilitating weekly music sessions with a group of incarcerated women in San Francisco county jail and continues to build this into a larger project involving her upcoming debut album borderlands. Naima is currently performing, teaching, traveling, loving, fighting the good fight and moved by unsung heroes around the world.
