Re: [mideastmusic-14] San Francisco Middle Eastern Music Meetup Group - 2008 kickoff!

1) i dont know many middle eastern artists, i especially enjoy arabic music. the only artists i am familiar with are amr diab, tamer housney, and alabina
2) i am open to any activities, i love middle eastern food so going to a restaurant with belly dancing sounds fun or maybe going dancing
3) i used to play the piano once upon a time and i sing poorly so i dont have much to offer the group musically
4) dinner always sounds good to me

Thanks for taking over and organizing this group!
I look forward to meeting you at some point :)

Hi everyone. Toofan, the original organizer had to step down due to other commitments and I offered to take over the organizing duties. I'm looking forward to getting this group going and meeting everyone.

My idea for this group is to get together people who are into various kinds of middle eastern music - Arabic, Persian, Jewish, Turkish, Kurdish, ...- and all the activities related to it - dinners, parties, concerts, jam sessions, .... There are a lot of performances, clubs, and restaurants around the Bay Area, so I hope we can take advantage.

I like music from all over the middle east and really enjoy discovering new music or local hotspots. I play music (santur / dulcimer), so I'd also be interested to meet other musicians and play together. I'd say my interest is slightly tilted towards mellower events (concerts/dinners/get togethers), but I like to party/go to clubs once in a while too.

I'd specially welcome anyone who is willing to serve as co-organizer of the meetup. The more the better!

To start, I'd appreciate it if you could reply to this email by March 3rd with the following information:

1) Give some examples of your favorite middle eastern music (songs / musicians)?

2) What kind of activities are you most interested in?
- Dinner outings (e.g. meeting for dinner with live music, belly dancing, ...)
- Concerts
- Clubs / parties with middle-eastern music (e.g. Aykut events)
- Getting together to play music/sing, or just hang out and listen to others
- Other suggestions

3) Do you play an instrument or sing?

4) Any suggestions for our first event?
