With the support and collaboration of American Islamic College, the Old Town School of Folk Music received a grant from the “Building Bridges” program of the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art. This grant supports “Ojala!” — a two-year project that includes eight full residencies and six mini-residencies for Muslim and Muslim adjacent artists in collaboration with a diverse cross-section of community organizations and institutions that are co-producing the project.
On May 6, 2022, The Old Town School of Folk Music, Muslim American Leadership Alliance (MALA), and American Islamic College will bring you musical performances by The Chicago Immigrant Orchestra, and Zeshan B., with host, Amirah Sackett at 7 pm Central. This free event is an Eid celebration, marking the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
