Arabesque includes the incredible talents of Michael Beach (lead vocals, doumbek, drums & mizmar) and Clark Salisbury (oud & saz) — both from the Portland-based, 2008 Grammy nominated Brothers of the Baladi — along with Carolynn Eaton (Arabic accordion & kanoon), Kevin Bayliss (clarinet & oboe), Kim Wilson (violin) and Albert McDonnell (acoustic bass).
Join us for an evening of energetic, amazing live music from this fantastic group of musicians, along with dance performances from MEDGE dancers Lola, Mali, Amy, and Zahia, plus plenty of open dance for the audience as well! Come on down and shimmy with us!
Also, Margie Templeton will be vending and will have some non-belly dance Christmas present scarves among her usual offerings – and everything’s on sale!!
