Erie Arts & Culture is proud to present this week's Friday Feature! Every June, Erie Arts and Culture honors the stories, voices, and talents of the refugees who live in our beautiful city of Erie, Pennsylvania. This month, we are highlighting some of the various artists who represent this amazing collective, while also providing our audience with the new and updated New American Owned Business Directory later this month.
Mustafa Albalkhi is an amazing professional Oud player who takes a strong delight in expressing the stories of his Syrian roots. With aspirations to teach others how to play the Oud, Mustafa loves performing for new, American audiences and meeting new people. In this interview, I had the pleasure of discussing his inspirations.
