Back by Popular Demand: Hafla, fueled by Electric Kahraba
Come feast and dance the night away with friends and comrades old and new! Be dazzled by surprising talents of performances by local artists! Be energized by the twisting and turning, always grooving sounds of Detroit/Beirut/New York’s own Joe Namy, aka, Iqaa-the Olivetone.
This party marks the end of Israel Apartheid Week (IAW: http://apartheidweek.org)
ABOUT ELECTRIC KAHRABA:
Joe Namy is a visual and aural artist whose creations are derived from his Lebanese heritage. Namy explores the manipulation of color, sound, and images to document and catalyze social change and cultural representation. His work has been exhibited in galleries, classrooms, museums, gas stations, bookstores, restaurants, bathrooms, and an elevator shaft.. His multi-media expressions reverberate social progression, and cultural empowerment, resistance to oppression and injustice, and promote independent thought and progressive creative action.
