    In NOMAD, Farah fuses her influences of middle eastern music, flamenco, jazz, bossa and pop, including more than 30 internationally acclaimed musicians from around the world. Farah was chosen as one of New York's “Summer Stars of Jazz” and named “the Norah Jones of the Middle East” by New York Time Out. In June 2014, Farah released her latest album, Dunya,meaning “world” in Arabic and Hindi. Farah currently leads an ethnically diverse quintet of Arabian Flamenco Jazz, with world-class musicians from the Middle East, Europe, the United States and South America. During her tour of India, Farah shared the stage with India's most renowned composer, A.R. Rahman, performing Zariya live on MTV. The song hit #1 in the music charts in India and #3 in the Middle East.

    As a humanitarian, Farah focuses on raising awareness about the consequences of war and violence, and advocates for women's rights, refugee rights and animal rights. In recognition of her humanitarian efforts, Farah was invited to perform at the United Nations Humanitarian Awards, and her music was played before the United Nations Security Council before passing a legislation regarding the genocide in Darfur. Farah approaches music as a medium for peace and a way to amplify the voices of people around the world who need to be heard.

    The Bridge PHL is a Philadelphia-based production company founded in 2015 by Gabrielle Corsaro, Hannah Tsapatoris MacLeod, Meryl Lynn Brown, and Kathy Harmer. We believe in the power of the narrative to encourage dialogue so we may all rise together to remake our world with compassion and inclusion. We seek to inspire a dialogue confronting systemic racism and to highlight the work of local Black and Brown theatre and performance artists.  Since 2015, our Bridge PHL family has grown into a power-packed ensemble of writers, performers, directors, and designers. Please visit our Staff & Alumni page.


    The Bridge PHL strives to foster healing connections between our rich and diverse communities by encouraging openness and dialogue on racial prejudice, privilege, inclusion, intersectionality and bias. 


    Our annual theatre festival each autumn and cabaret each spring welcomes both emerging and experienced artists wishing to engage in this mission. Through theatre and the performing arts, we seek to create spaces where artists with marginalized voices, especially the diverse voices of Black American women, feel welcome and are heard.
