Iron Sheik


Using hip-hop as his medium, the Iron Sheik relays informed views on the Palestinian movement for independence, the war on terrorism, US foreign policy in general, the Arab world, and growing up Arab-American. Since releasing his first album, 'Camel Clutch 2003,' he has toured and performed both nationally and internationally. Musically, the Sheik often draws on Arabic music, such as the legendary Um Kulthoum, Fairuz, Marcel Khalife, Abdel-Halim, and more. Read more on Last.fm
Using hip-hop as his medium, the Iron Sheik relays informed views on the Palestinian movement for independence, the war on terrorism, US foreign policy in general, the Arab world, and growing up Arab-American. Since releasing his first album, 'Camel Clutch 2003,' he has toured and performed both nationally and internationally. Musically, the Sheik often draws on Arabic music, such as the legendary Um Kulthoum, Fairuz, Marcel Khalife, Abdel-Halim, and more. Intellectually, he draws inspiration from thinkers such as Edward Said, Ilan Pappe, Walid Khalidi, Hannah Arendt, Darwish, and many others. He was a featured performer at the national American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Convention in 2003, the Palestinian-American Women's Association banquet in March of 2004, and at Awal Rabie (first Spring) put on by Al-Mawred Al-Thaqafy in Cairo, Egypt. The Sheik has performed at Native American reservations, inner city schools, and community centers, among other places. Media as diverse as the Berkeley-based radio station KPFA, Egypt's Nile TV, the web-zine Muslim WakeUp, Wayne State University's South End Press, and the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Jerusalem Report, and the New York Times have covered the Sheik's work. Iron Sheik's album 'Yet We Remain' was released in September of 2004. Iron Sheik's music has been and will be featured in upcoming documentaries and films.

'Olive Trees' made it into a Japanese documentary called "Visiting Palestine Under Occupation - Refugee Problem", which was produced by the Palestine Forum, based in Osaka, Japan. 'The Tale of 3 Mohammads' was inspired by a film of that title by Nasri Zacharia, who is currently working on a music video for that song. 'About Baghdad', from the upcoming album, was inspired by a documentary by that name as well. Read more on Last.fm.
