Angie Assal is a Lebanese-American multimedia artist and dancer born and raised in New York City. Through studying Middle Eastern percussion, she decided to use her visual arts/STEM background to create totally hand-painted, lightweight jewelry based off of the instruments she is learning to play. Sound of Mazzika (which is a word for "music" in Arabic) was birthed from making herself the first pair of Darbuka earrings, and she has expanded into making unique and exquisite items that are enjoyed and worn all over the globe. She loves familiarizing people with Arab culture and facilitating people's interest in Arabic music. Most of all, she's honored in giving the Arab/SWANA community a chance to stylishly rep their culture!
