Naima Shalhoub is a Lebanese American educator, vocalist, composer
and performing artist. After receiving her MA in Postcolonial and
Cultural Anthropology in 2008, she turned her focus to music and
performance in the Bay Area. Shalhoub performs in renowned venues and
conferences, teaches in Universities, facilitates music sessions in
Jails, Prisons and Juvenile Halls, including through the 5 Keys
Program in San Francisco and is a Restorative Justice Coordinator with
an Oakland public school.
At present, her work focuses on the concept of borderlands as a social construction and how bodies, memory, identity, narratives are affected by this. In addition to this work, she is currently working on a larger project called "Borderlands" that speaks to these intersections through music and song as vessels for expression and freedom.
