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, Heather Spence, Druminic, Jennifer Laemmer and Mark Cheater, plus guest musicians and singers, playing extraordinarily exotic instruments such as qanun, oud, ney and darbuka.
We have an amazing show planned for May! Gracing our stage will be some amazing long-distance dancers. We'll have Shannon Bishop from Pennsylvania, Amustela, who is now living in North Carolina, Lisa Zahiya, also from North Caolina, and headliner Habiba from Philadelphia. The second half of the show is all open dancing, so get up and shake your tailfeathers! Contact Latifa -- latifa (at) bintbeled (dot) com -- if you are interested in performing at a future show.
Suggested donation $10. Your contributions to the tip jar will help our local, dancer-friendly musicians feel appreciated and will pay our headliner. If you don't have cash, Latifa can swipe your credit card. Also, please order something delicious from the cafe and tip your waitstaff generously to ensure our ongoing welcome at this wonderful venue.
The New Deal Cafe offers a varied menu, captivating live entertainment, and an intimate community atmosphere. Exhibitions by local artists decorate the walls, and there's lots of free parking.
Please note that since these shows regularly sell out and seats are hard to come by, your Meet Up RSVP does not guarantee you a table, Call the restaurant directly to make your reservation.
