Welcome to our inaugural issue. This is the first of what will soon become a weekly publication. Each week, we will present you with issues relevant to Arab-Americans, including film, music, literature, politics, organizations, activists, relationships, and humor. In order to be of use to you, we encourage you to send us your comments whenever you can. The goal of this web-site is to serve the interests of people of Arab descent in America, so we would love to hear from you (comments, suggestions, critique) about any subject relating to this.

Marcel Khalife strums the heartbeat of the Arab world

For over two decades the music of Marcel Khalife has linked the Arab world, voicing protest, struggle, cultural ferment and the hopes and daily concerns of the people. His contributions to both Arab and world music have earned him international recognition and honors and awards from many nations including the U.S., Tunisia, Cote D'Ivoire, Germany and Yemen. Cafe Arabica met with Marcel after his performances at the Third Annual Festival of Arab World Culture held September 7 and 8 in New York.
