Amplify Peace

Amplify Peace is a collaborative touring production featuring American artists from the diaspora of predominantly Muslim countries impacted by war. The multi-genre program includes artists Bassel & The Supernaturals (soul/funk), Kayem (hip-hop), Omar Offendum (spoken word) and Ronnie Malley (traditional Mid-Eastern). Through performance and educational workshops, these socially conscious artists raise awareness about issues affecting the US, Middle East, and the Muslim world. 

Amplify Peace originated from the success of a tour across the United States in October 2017. The tour was produced in partnership with Sukoon Creative and the Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS), including Syrian-American artists Omar Offendum and Bassel & The Supernaturals, Libyan-American hip-hop sensation Kayem, the traditional Middle Eastern sounds of Palestinian-American artist Ronnie Malley & The Turath Ensemble, and DJ Bella Loki. Highlights from the tour included a performance at the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., the Arab American National Museum in Michigan, and a feature by the Associated Press.
