Palestinian artists showcase talent at inaugural Palipalooza
Palestine in America held its first annual Palipalooza on Aug. 13. The sold out inaugural concert was held at Aladdin Palace Banquet in Chicago’s southwest suburb, Hickory Hills.
The concert brought 200 guests together to celebrate the release of our second annual magazine and Palestinian artists.
The night was a success, filled with live entertainment from Palestinian performers such as Aymen Trouble of Dexter Danger, Waheeb Nasan, Kareem Ibrahim, Safi G and Baeoa. Palestinian artists Leila Abdelrazaq and Mohammed Qreaiqea also showcased their art.
“Palipalooza was everything we expected and more,” President and Editor-in-Chief Nader Ihmoud said. “It was a great way to begin an annual tradition and introduce a large Palestinian-American community to Palestine in America.”
Every year the concert will showcase Palestinian talent in the United States and the plan is to bring the event to as many cities as possible.
Palestine in America will continue to showcase Palestinian talent and uplift the Palestinian voice through its events and publications. This event was made possible by the hard work and dedication of Palestine in America board members and the community.
Palipalooza was sponsored by American Friends Services Committee and Jewish Voice for Peace.
