Oudist, Composer, Singer and Cultural Ambassador

An Evening with the Oud: Crossing continents and cultures with the most beautiful instrument you’ve never heard of!

 Join us for a 60 minute, multi-sensory concert experience of mystical joy and new vibrations with Aliya Cycon. Come in person to Saint James Church in Lancaster, or join us online for a streamed performance.

Aliya Cycon was born and raised in America, but her music suggests otherwise. Singing in Arabic, Spanish and English, while showcasing her unique Oud playing, Aliya shares her curiosity for the world through her original compositions and multi-cultural covers.

She has performed at the Nobel Business For Peace Awards in Oslo, and toured internationally as a “Cultural Ambassador” for the US State Department, performing in Tunisian summer music festivals, and giving workshops and concerts in Kuwait. Aliya has just released a new single called "Breath: Psalm 150.”
