Join us for an afternoon of live Middle Eastern music, dance, and tasty treats at the New Deal Cafe in Greenbelt, Maryland. Laying down the tunes will be Kylie Hilali, Abderrahim Amthqal, Ken Wright, Bryan Bowman, and Mark Cheater, plus guest musicians and singers, playing extraordinarily exotic instruments such as qanun, oud and darbuka.
Headlining the show this month will be the wonderful Shems, joined by guest dancers Hanadi, Talis, Lara Adrienne, and Latifa's troupe, Banat al-Beled, performing to all live music. Contact Latifa -- latifa (at) bintbeled (dot) com -- if you are interested in performing.
Suggested donation $10. Your contributions to the tip jar will help our local, dancer-friendly musicians feel appreciated! Also, please order something delicious from the cafe and tip your waitstaff generously to ensure our ongoing welcome at this new venue.
The New Deal Cafe offers luscious Lebanese food and desserts, captivating live entertainment, and an intimate community atmosphere. Exhibitions by local artists, and a decent cup of coffee.
