Openers: Kafkasso – Daryal Kafkasso Erdem was born and raised in Istanbul, the ancient capital of Turkey. This great city, soaked in centuries of history and tradition, influenced his musical style and personality. Echoing in Kafkasso’s original pieces are the chants from the minarets over the mystical city, or lively conversation at the colorful bazaar. Since coming to Florida eight years ago he has created an outstanding international band whose success comes from his unique guitar-playing style, combining rock, Flamenco, and Turkish melodies together. He also began working with Johanna Xenobia and Omaris, from Hip Expressions Belly Dance Studio. Together, they began fusing the musical sound with visual stylings from Latin, Belly Dance, and Performance Art.
Tickets $12 advance, $15 door.
