The critically acclaimed artist and songwriter Maya Azucena will be conducting an empowering workshop, “Unleash Your Power Through Music,” at Centara West Bay Residences & Suites. The workshop will feature songs and storytelling, demonstrating the power of music in transforming our lives. The workshop, organized by the Doha Women Forum, in collaboration with the Embassy of the United States in Qatar, will be held on Wednesday, March 2, at 6:00 PM. It is one of the many Doha Women Forum initiatives to promote the health and wellbeing of women and youth in Qatar.

American artist Maya Azucena fuses indie-pop and contemporary rhythm and blues (R&B), along with passionate, blues-inspired vocals, to create music that uplifts the soul. Azucena is well-known for her humanitarian outlook and global projects. Based on a personal commitment to positively impact society through her talent, most of Azucena’s songs are anthems that lend a voice to self-worth, women and youth empowerment, overcoming obstacles, and stepping into our fearless selves.

Chargé d’Affaires Natalie A. Baker of the U.S. Embassy in Qatar remarked:

“We are excited to welcome Maya Azucena to the Middle East for the first time and collaborate with local grassroots movements to highlight women in music and self-empowerment. This workshop with the Doha Women Forum allows for all to find common ground through music, storytelling, and self-expression.”

Doha Women Forum Founder Conchita Ponce said:

“It is a great pleasure to be able to bring a workshop that aims to transform our lives and increase our self-worth using 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 participants discover their superpower.

Rivage Qatar representative, Linda Vorkale said:

“Rivage Qatar team is delighted to support the upcoming workshop on music as means to bring positive change and make an impact on society.”

The Maya Azucena visit is organized by the U.S. Embassy in Qatar and the workshop is sponsored by Centara West Bay Residences & Suites and Rivage Skincare – Natural Dead Sea Minerals.
