Atash + DJ Sunray
September 8, 2015 @ 9:00 pm - 2:00 am$5
Atash, whose name is derived from the Persian word for “fire,” combines master musicians from around the globe to create a powerful, worldly original sound that inspires people of all ages and from all walks of life to dance and commune in a celebration of life! Flamingo looks forward to hosting them weekly on Tuesday nights in September and October.
Mohammad Firoozi sings in his native Farsi, as the frontman of Atash, backed by a host of talented master musicians playing a rare combination of instruments from around the world, including Indrajit Banerjee from Kolkata, India on sitar; Aboubacar Sylla from Guinea, west Africa, on djembe; José Manuel Tejeda from Havana, Cuba, on flamenco guitar; Korean-American violinist John Moon; Dylan Jones on bass; Chris Häusler on drums, and Roberto Paolo Riggio from Mexico on violin/musical director. Often compared to the Gipsy Kings, this music breaks down barriers, builds bridges, connects people, and is about celebrating life; it defies categorization and shatters stereotypes.
Come dance with us! Doors at 9pm, Atash from 10 to 12am, followed by DJ Sunray. Cover only $5.
