Amplify Peace features American artists from the diaspora of predominantly Muslim countries impacted by war. Previous iterations of the tour highlighted Syria, raising awareness around the largest humanitarian crisis of our lifetime and shining a light on U.S. based charity organizations such as the Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS), Karam Foundation, and the Syrian American Council. The program features a dynamic, multi-genre performance by socially conscious artists along with a variety of educational packages featuring lectures, interactive workshops, and a Q&A.
Amplify Peace originated from the success of a multi-genre tour across the United States in October 2017. The tour was produced in partnership with Sukoon Creative and SAMS, and artists included Syrian-American artists Omar Offendum and Bassel & The Supernaturals, Libyan-American hip-hop sensation Kayem, the traditional Arabic sounds of Ronnie Malley & The Turath Ensemble, and DJ Bella Loki. Highlights from the tour included a performance at the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., the Arab American National Museum in Michigan, and a feature by the Associated Press.
