It’s the ancient calling, piercing through the numbness, rousing the life force that you buried in your childhood, when you thought, “this is as good as it gets” and fell in step. It’s the euphoria awaiting you in the expansive realm – not the one that vanishes when the hit is over, but the one that remains, reshaping you into that vision from the mist of your dreams. It is the fierce love that looks for you, finds you, gently takes your hand, and says, “Come. It is time.” From the cathartic force of punk rock to the calming energy of sacred chants, KHAZZOOMusic is the soundtrack for your soul’s transformational journey. An innovative blend of original music and ancient Iraqi Jewish prayers, sung in English, Hebrew, and Judeo-Arabic, it is the creation of singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Loolwa Khazzoom. Her lyrics boldly confront personal and collective trauma – exploring how to cultivate joy, beauty, intimacy, and resilience from the brokenness of our lives and our world.
