In celebration of art uniting us all, Turner Carroll joins forces with master oud musician Rahim AlHaj and internationally acclaimed artists and writers, to support Iraqi and Syrian children. AlHaj will perform music from his upcoming collaboration with musicians from Palestine, Iran, and North Korea, which will later be performed at Kennedy Center, in Washington, D.C.
AlHaj, born and raised in Baghdad, Iraq, is uncontestably one of the finest Iraqi musicians to find refuge in the United States. His music has been nominated for Grammy Awards, and he has performed and taught all over the world. His upcoming performances include venues such as the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., and a music fellowship in China. He plays an instrument that is at least 5000 years old–the oud–but he gives it the voice of compassion, beauty, and struggle, that is embedded in our contemporary culture.
