Comedy/ Music Show in Queens, NY

MAS Youth New York presents

Saturday April 4th 2009
Goldstein Theater at Queens College
Doors open at 6:00pm

TSOR | Baba Ali | "L" Debois | Khalil Ismail | Yousaf

Expressions is an entertainment event that encompasses various forms of verbal art, including singing, comedy and spoken word. Through this event, we in MAS Youth NY hope to empower the youth to express themselves through positive avenues, and encourage them to redefine art rather than accept what is handed to them.

The purpose of the event is to provide positive conscious entertainment for the community at large that will create an inviting atmosphere where artistic creativity and talent is promoted.

THE SOUND OF REASON- "If any group is going to change the direction of music I am convinced it will be The Sound of Reason" - Andrew Chang, CBC news

BABA ALI- The founder of Ummah Films, a film company that has produced popular web series including the "Reminder" series and "Ask Baba Ali" series. - A worker in the IT field by profession in California, Ardekani quickly rose to prominence within the online community with films that tackle the broad struggles faced by Muslims in the West and the common misconceptions about Islam.

"L" DEBOIS- Former DefJam artist bringing a new urban sensation to the music world of nasheeds. His goal through his music is to bring social awareness to enlighten the youth and listeners through inspirational lyrics.

KHALIL ISMAIL- Growing up with the principles and moral standards of Islam helped shape Khalil's focused attention to social and spiritual issues within his music. He is set to release a new album in 2009 that will show his true growth as an artist "The Calm Before the Storm".

YOUSAF- An up and coming Spoken Word artist from New Jersey. His poetry is charged with emotion that will get your pulse racing, your heart pumping, and will no doubt leave you breathless.
