INVINCIBLE: A hip hop artist with wordplay and rhymes that will leave you speechless. Invincible’s lyrics are like a Sledgehammer to the political and social constructs you once thought you knew. Invincible is based in Detroit, but their reach connects people from around the globe beginning with small communities.http://emergencemedia.org/
KHALED M.: The son of a Libyan revolutionary, a Libyan-American hip hop artist and reigning Chicago Urban Music Awards “Lyricist of the Year” has been featured on CNN, ABC World News, Yahoo! News, BBC, Complex Magazine, NPR and more.http://thisiskhaledm.com/
REMI KANAZI: Palestinian-American poet and activist based in NYC. The editor of the anthology of hip hop, poetry and art, Poets for Palestine (2008), and the author of the collection of poetry, Poetic Injustice: Writings on Resistance and Palestine (2011). He has toured hundreds of venues across the US, Canada, Europe and the Middle East. http://
SHINING SOUL: A grass roots duo based out of PHX, originating from the occupied O’odham land of southern Arizona, Shining Soul’s unique vintage means of beat production, and down to earth, empowering rhyme delivery is reminiscent of Hip-Hop’s early days, when beats, rhymes, and community empowerment took priority.http://
PALESTINE CHILDREN’S RELIEF FUND (AZ Chapter): The Palestine Children’s Relief Fund is a registered non-political, non-profit, 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization that was established in 1991 by concerned people in the U.S. to address the medical and humanitarian crisis facing Palestinian youths in the Middle East.
