Can you believe it is only 10 weeks until our 21st annual "Give Belly Dance A Chance" weekend?

Sunday night, we have as our guests an extraordinary group of musicians including Georges Lammam (violin) from San Francisco, CA.

Georges is of Palestinian descent, born in Beirut, Lebanon and as a solo violinist, he exemplifies the Arabic style of instrumental improvisation.   

Mr. Lammam has toured the world as a featured artist.  Most recently, he toured in Bolivia with renowned artists, Eddie and Gabriel Navia and joined other stellar performers in an event hosted by Joined Hands (USA NP) and organized by Marcus Lovett, in the refugee camp in Chalkida, Greece.  This event was to support refugee families and humanitarians who are receiving thousands of people from Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan.

His compositions and performance excerpts are included in scores for two award-winning documentaries:  “Occupation 101” and “Tea on the Axis of Evil”, and he recorded a well-known folkloric debke in a 2016 feature film, “Wrestling Jerusalem” by Aaron Davidman.
