A Musical Refuge: Salute to Dreamer Immigrant and Refugee Resistance
Islamic Cultural Center of Northern California
1433 Madison St., Oakland CA

The La Peña Community Chorus is proud to join forces with old friends, Vukani Mawethu, and new — Aswat Ensemble and San Jose Taiko Ensemble — to perform in a concert put on by Zawaya at the Islamic Cultural Center of Northern California. This evening is dedicated to shedding light on the struggles faced by immigrants and refugees the world over but particularly here in the United States. We will raise our voices in support of the people whose lives are at stake here and abroad in hopes that in solidarity we can change minds and policies.

So please join us. We are learning to sing four beautiful songs in Arabic with Aswat and Vukani Mawethu and we are all sharing repertoire among the three choruses. It will be a beautiful and inspiring event!

The event is free! Tickets available at
