The luminous singer/songwriter Naima Shaloub went looking for her Lebanese roots and found an ongoing calling for turning music into a vehicle for social justice, inspiration and healing. Her Lebanese parents were born in Sierra Leone and raised in Beirut, and she absorbed a rich array of culture growing up in the US. Devoted to music since 2010, she’s created a gorgeous body of work, primarily in English but also Arabic, Spanish, French, and Italian. Her 2015 debut album Live in San Francisco County Jail emerged from her weekly music sessions with incarcerated women inside San Francisco County Jail.
