Iraqis in Pajamas – Live in Concert

March 15 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

$8 – $15

Iraqis in Pajamas fuses ancient Iraqi Jewish prayers with original punk rock and personal storytelling. Front woman Loolwa Khazzoom (who has been a leader of our Sephardic Kabbalat Shabbat services) belts out tunes in Judeo-Arabic, Hebrew, and English, on themes of healing and transformation – addressing topics as varied as cancer, domestic violence, national exile, and street harassment. Whatever our particular challenge, the songs explore, how can we express our rage, our pain, and our despair, without getting stuck in it? Better yet, how can we use those energies, channeling them for our own personal transformation and that of the world around us? The band recently received a grant to produce the song, “Cancer Is My Engine,” about healing from cancer through music – which will release on March 1. In addition to performing this song, the band will offer a sneak peek at songs from their forthcoming debut album, Punk iRock – including songs that integrate four Iraqi prayers for Purim and Pesah.
