Playing at the opening night of Alianait on Thursday, the artists performed some of their own songs as well as covers of tunes by notable musicians like Nina Simone, a ’50s jazz, folk and R&B artist and civil rights activist in the United States. The festival continues through Monday with performances by dancers, actors and musicians as well as live plays and arts-based workshops. (Photo by Meral Jamal)
