This week we’re catching up with Angie Assal (who you might remember from previous episodes) Lebanese-American artist, dancer, aspiring musician, and creator of Sound of Mazzika, a line of jewelry and more inspired by Arabic music and culture.
Angie explains why she got started studying Arabic percussion, and how it also led her to practice the martial art Bagua. She also talks about recovering from injuries and COVID hospitalization, and dream collaborations for her jewelry business (Haifa Wehbe, please listen). We also discuss how hypermobility is confusing, why we like showing up to parties when no one is there, and the possibility of taking over the world with earrings.
