Raquy & The Cavemen with special guests Luciterra Fusion Belly-Dance Troupe (giveaway)

Back in July, Anabelle attended a fusion music show at the Waldorf and enjoyed it very much. So now it’s Hummingbird604.com’s chance to give you a pair of tickets for another Eastern fusion music show featuring Raquy & The Cavemen and the amazing Luciterra Fusion Belly-Dance troupe. If only for the belly-dancing, this show will be worth it!

Raquy and the Cavemen of Brooklyn, NY, bring traditional Middle Eastern music and modern drumming to a heady peak. Raquy has travelled to many distant countries including those in the Middle East, Egypt, Turkey and India, where she has experienced and absorbed vast amounts of musical culture. She uses all this knowledge to bring an amazing act to the stage. Raquy Danzinger performs with the Dumbek (Arabic hand drum) and the Kamanche (Iranian spike-fiddle).

Raquy’s musical partner is Israeli percussionist and guitarist Liron Peled’s, performing on his unique dumbek-drumset, influenced by his hard rock drumming background, and his recent exploration of Tuvan throat-singing. The name Cavemen is appropriate due to the rawness of the beats, and there is also a timeless element to the music that raises the listener to an uplifted state of trance. Their sound is a deep stare into the eyes and soul of the Middle Eastern culture that lives inside the music. The love that each band member has for their instrument is especially evident when they are all on stage. They move fluidly through their masterful enchanted drumming and mystical kemenche and Tuvan throat-singing. Find one of their shows and be enriched, encouraged and energized.

We have a pair of tickets for their September 8th show at Wise Hall. To enter the giveaway, mention something you enjoy about Middle Eastern culture in the comments. For an extra entry, tweet the following:

I like to eat, so it’s all about the food! Turkish lavash bread is fantastic.

What do I appreciate about Middle Eastern culture? Music, food, architecture, for starters.

Just a note, the requested Twitter comment had 2 extra characters, so I had to delete a space and the exclamation mark to get it to fit.

What I love about Middle Eastern Culture – the fusion of warmth, generousity, beauty and such soulful artistic sensuous expression – be that on the dinner plate, in the concert hall, the curvy lines of a mosque, the smiles of my generous friends, or a hot Mediterranean wind tickling my neck :)

I appreciate the beauty of Middle Eastern culture.

Jessica R.FSeptember 6th, 2011 at 12:43 pm

Wow, this was totally unexpected, because I gave up hope yesterday! Thanks so much!

I loved seeing this show. A great local artist, Pepe Danza, also joined them on stage for a couple numbers.
