Sofian Mahmoud is a Palestinian-American creative, and musician born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, that goes by the name Paliboy Original. He is the artist behind the music you listen to during the introduction of the podcast, and recently won Western Washington University’s Freestyle Rap Battle competition hosted by AS Productions and Revival Events. In 2019 they led a workshop titled “Palestinian Indigeneity: Borders & Displacement” alongside their colleague and friend Saniah Naim at the National MEChA Conference in UCLA. Sofian’s musical inspiration comes from the many countries and communities he’s had the privilege of traveling to, and he dedicates this episode to his Siti that passed away last year before being able to return to her indigenous homeland.
