The Arab American National Museum is hosting a two-day music and arts festival this weekend in Downriver.
Lujine Nasralla, communications specialist at the AANM, says JAM3A a way to bring people together to learn about Michigan’s Arab American communities.
“Jamaa is an Arabic word for gathering — and we all are going to gather together to listen to some music presented by internationally renowned Arab artists,” Nasralla says. “They’re coming from all over the world — from Sudan, from Egypt, from Jordan, and Syria and many more areas. So it’s really an international music and arts festival.”
Nasralla says JAM3A will be a hybrid event Sept. 16-17 at Wayne County Community College District’s Taylor campus, featuring global artists, open mic sessions for the audience and dabke dance opportunities.
