Episode 4: From the Caliphates to California: The Evolution of the Shawarma and the Guitar

Mohammad Abutaha (Shawarmaji, Owner) and Ronnie Malley (multiinstrumentalist, musical genius) sit with us for an exciting discussion about Shawarmas and the classical instrument, the OUD. Whether it is through musical instruments or through delicious food, culture evolves over time. We interact with others crossing our geographic and ethnic boundaries, to transcend superficial differences and build new and beautiful things together. Art and food are both great markers of culture, and what an honor and a pleasure it is to be able to observe, experience, and be a part of this intergenerational evolution.
