If you are a musician or know someone who would like to join us on stage, please sign up here: https://goo.gl/forms/qQOVu6FMs7m2t3ee2 We also have a special program after 9pm!
  • Excited to meet you all tonight! I'll be bringing my oud - I've recently started learning it, specifically the East African styles, which is very much a neighbor to Arabic music. Here's a rough recording I took a few weeks back. I'd love to get into a pentatonic (major, minor, or neutral) jam like this tonight - as well as jams on classic Arabic maqamat and whatever everyone else is up for! :)
  • Event will be on the 2nd floor of Bossa Bistro. Attendance is Free.
  • This evening's special guests : Khaled Almaoulaoui on percussion (Riq/ Tabla/ Cajun) and Palestinian-Californian vocalist Dalia Marina. See you in few hours!
