Seattle guests

Qabila Folkdance Company – a dance collective in Seattle, Washington that focuses on Middle Eastern dance. The Qabila Foundation is dedicated to sharing the joy and diversity of Arab folk dance rooted in the belief that art can build bridges of understanding between cultures, ages, genres, ideologies and origins and we allows everyone to belong.

David B. Metz – The drummer of the “dancers”! David has been playing Middle Eastern music and playing drums for dancer drum solos for many years! Ever seen a drum solo ?! You will enjoy ! A drum solo is a completely improvised duet between a drummer and a dancer. Fun, fast-paced and thrilling, this is not an act to be missed!
