Ft. Christiane Karam
Are you curious about the healing benefits of Music?
Born and raised in Beirut, Lebanon, Christiane has experienced the consequences of a war-torn country. Throughout her journey to find her “normal” Christiane discovered the power in music and its effect on human connection and healing trauma.
Christiane shows us that while she lived in a war torn country, the real work to be done is the war the exists within ourselves. Christiane gives us key insights into how our extreme experiences can either make or break us, and how working through our trauma through the power of music can help us to heal.
Christiane is the leader and founder of the award-winning ZilZALA Ensemble, which blends classical, traditional, and folk music from different regions of the Middle East and the Balkans with contemporary jazz.
Christiane’s latest project strives to explore human connection and the journey of healing darkness and separation, while celebrating the exuberance and depth of the vast array of musical traditions she comes from. Christiane is a staunch activist for cultural understanding, tolerance, and non-violent conflict resolution and actively continues her work of bringing awareness and Positive Social Change through music and the arts.
In this profound episode, Christiane takes us on a journey to show us no matter the war we are experiencing, in the end, it is always worth it.
