An event in Detroit that brings together three wildly different performances representing the vast diversity of the Arab world.

Violinist/composer Mike Khoury and choreographer Leyya Tawil team up to present a performance that provides a touchstone for the Palestinian American experience with a new work that situates itself in the legacy and future of the Arab avant-garde.

Tammy Lakkis is an emerging vocalist, producer and DJ well-known to Detroit dance floors for her eclectic, mostly-vinyl sets that celebrate the coexistence of light, dark, and fun. Her electronic musical production, lives in many worlds but finds its center in house, electro, and techno.

Kabareh Cheikhats pays tribute to Morocco’s most famous female traditional folk singers. Both adored and stigmatized, the cheikhats had an ambiguous position in society. With deep reverence and infectious flair, Kabareh Cheikhats sing, dance, and re-enact their powerful songs of love, rebellion, and fierce independence while inventing traditions of drag and gender ambiguity.
