FREEDOM DREAMS: a transnational musical dialogue

Ana Tijoux + Shadia Mansour + Maya Jupiter

“Progressive social movements do not simply produce statistics and narratives of oppression; rather, the best ones do what great poetry always does: transport us to another place, compel us to relive horrors and, more importantly, enable us to imagine a new society.”
-Robin d.g. Kelley

Join AF3IRM Los Angeles as we continue and elevate our work of re-imagination, theory-building. We believe that WOC have not only the capacity, but the DUTY to be the architects of the liberation we fighting so fiercely to attain.

In the current political moment, poetry and imagination help us produce language and consciousness to articulate a collective vision of liberation-- freedom dreams. Who better than artists and cultural producers to engage with and create spaces for dialogue as we embark in this process? Cultural workers have the ability to delicately and overtly create soundscapes that can introduce us to untapped moods, feelings and visions. Artists have always infused movements with hope and creativity, encouraging us to dream beyond the conditions in which we are forced to live.

We are humbled to have worked with Ana Tijoux and Maya Jupiter in this endeavor. And now this year, we are honored to add Shadia Mansour to further this work.

WHEN: Sunday, May 28, 8pm
WHERE: Zebulon LA, 2476 Fletcher Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90039

About Ana Tijoux
Ana Tijoux is a Chilean MC based in Santiago. Born to parents exiled from their native Chile by the military dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet, Ana Tijoux returned to Santiago in 1993 and by the late 1990s was well known throughout Latin America as MC of the hip-hip band Makiza. A solo artist since 2006, she has thrilled audiences internationally with her politically hard-hitting lyrics and signature flow, earning the title of “South America’s answer to Lauryn Hill” (New York Times). She has traveled throughout the US—performing at Austin City Limits, SXSW and the 2015 Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, among others, while making time for interviews on programs such as Democracy Now!—in support of her latest album, Vengo (2014).

About Shadia Mansour
Shadia Mansour, “the first lady of Arabic hip-hop”, is a London-born Palestinian singer and MC. Mansour began singing at Palestinian protest rallies as a child and became known in London’s Palestinian community for performing classical Arab songs of protest at an early age. She has toured with Existence is Resistance, an organization supporting hip-hop shows in Palestine, recorded with artists M-1 of dead prez and Omar Offendum, and is part of the “Arab League” hip-hop collective.

About Maya Jupiter
Maya Jupiter is an energetic, passionate emcee and performer. Maya's artivism (artist/activism) began in her early twenties when she worked with at-risk youth in her hometown of Sydney, Australia. Now living and raising a family in Los Angeles, Maya is an unwavering artivist, releasing songs and music videos that highlight some of today's toughest topics, such as modern-day slavery, sexual violence and the objectification of women in media.
