Dabke Night

Live on stage: Rizan Said

Dabke is a social dance from the Middle-East (Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, Iraq) that you never dance alone. It is a dance that is traditionally danced during a party, birthday, wedding or just because the right music is being played. People jump up, form a circle and dance together to the beat that the dabke brings. Dancing together has something magical and brings people of all nationalities together.

Live on stage: Rizan Said
All the way from Syria Rizan Said is a real keyboard virtuoso who only needs an Arabic keyboard with dabke rhythms to burn down the dance floor. You probably know him (or one of his super exciting tunes) from Omar Souleyman records, because he’s the former keyboard player. Said’s debut solo album “King of Keyboard” sounds like an eclectic mix of rave, pumped up Arab melodies, sick beats and speakers which are filled up with sand. Major international media like The Guardian are huge fans and we’re pretty sure you will be excited too!
