Event

Naima Shalhoub at the Sound Room
Shalhoub's performance and compositions are stunning. Shalhoub, who is Lebanese-American, melds American soul and blues with Arabic folk music and has a soulful voice that seamlessly transitions between growly high belts, fragile falsetto, and deep rich low tones. Her debut CDLive in San Francisco County Jail combines her raw talent with her passion for social justice.

After receiving her MA in Postcolonial and Cultural Anthropology in 2008, she turned her focus to creation and performance in the Bay Area. She immediately found herself equally at home with her band on the stages of San Francisco music venues and in the spotlight as a presenting speaker at TEDXLAU in Beirut. Her music brings vibrant personality, poetic eloquence and impassioned performances to both nationally acclaimed venues and community event spaces. She also appears in theater productions, joins fundraisers, and speaks at conferences across the United States.

In May of 2014, Naima combined her passion for music, social justice, and education by facilitating weekly Music and Freedom sessions with incarcerated women at the San Francisco County Jail. The program was such a success that, a year later, she recorded her debut album, Live in San Francisco County Jail, in front of an audience of those same incarcerated women, many of whom participated in the performance. The result is a recording that embodies Naimas deeply held belief that music and song are vessels for freedom and healing.

In addition to appearing regularly with her band, Naima is currently teaching, composing, and serving as a Restorative Justice Coordinator for youth in the Oakland public school system. At the same time she continues to work on her project Borderlands: an expansion on her work in the San Francisco County Jail. Borderlands facilitates music sessions that are simultaneously expressive and educational, and ultimately connect with the larger movement of transformative justice on a local and an international scale.

With: Ed Baskerville on Cello;  Tarik Kazaleh on Guitar, Oud and Tabla;  Colin Douglas  on Drums;   Isaac Ho on Piano;  Chris Trinidad on bass guitar
