Critically acclaimed American artist and songwriter Maya Azucena will lead an empowering workshop on life, power and music on March 2nd at Centara West Bay Residences & Suites.
The workshop, titled Unleash Your Power Through Music, organized by the Doha Women Forum in partnership with the US Embassy in Qatar, will share songs and stories that demonstrate the power of music in transforming lives.
The workshop is one of the many initiatives of the Doha Women Forum aimed at advancing the health and well-being of women and youth in Qatar.
Azucena fuses indie-pop and contemporary rhythm and blues (R&B) with passionate, blues-inspired vocals to create soul-elevating music. She is known for her humanitarian attitude and global projects.
Based on her personal commitment to positively impacting society through her talent, most of Azucena’s songs are anthems that give a voice to self-worth, empowering women and youth, overcoming obstacles and entering our fearless selves.
In a statement, US Embassy Chargé d’Affaires Natalie A Baker said: “We are delighted to welcome Maya Azucena to the Middle East for the first time and to work with local grassroots movements to highlight women in music and self-empowerment. This workshop with the Doha Women Forum allows everyone to find common ground through music, storytelling and self-expression.”
Conchita Ponce, Founder of the Doha Women Forum, said: “It is a great pleasure to be able to offer a workshop aimed at transforming our lives and increasing our self-esteem through music. Maya Azucena is a wonderful performer who aims to empower women and youth by focusing on finding and expressing their voice.”
Azucena said she looks forward to visiting Qatar for the first time and helping attendees discover their superpower.
Linda Vorkale, representative of Rivage Qatar, said: “The Rivage Qatar team is excited to support the upcoming workshop on music as a vehicle to create positive change and make an impact in society.”
The Maya Azucena visit is organized by the US Embassy Qatar and the workshop is sponsored by Centara West Bay Residences & Suites and Rivage Skincare – Natural Dead Sea Minerals.
