In turn vulnerable and angry, haunting and inspiring, Seattle-area performer Loolwa Khazzoom, who leads the band “Iraqis in Pajamas”, disarms audiences, opening them to deep contemplation about trauma, healing, and transformation.

With songs in English, Judeo-Arabic, and Hebrew, Loolwa has a unique sound – an innovative blend of ancient Iraqi Jewish prayers, alternative rock, and personal storytelling about topics as varied as cancer, domestic violence, racism, mental illness, street harassment, family caregiving, and national exile.
