Arabic Music – raw and real by some of the nation’s best musicians! Local dancers from Karavan Studio performing.

About this Event


Karavan Studio’s “Project Band” Dancers perform to the live music of Michael Ibrahim (Detroit) on oud, Gilbert Mansour (New York) on riqq, and Nibal Malshi (Dallas) on vocals.

Michael is the founder and conductor of the esteemed National Arab Orchestra (NAO) based in Detroit Michigan. All three of these musicians graced San Antonio with their presence last October.

But these three in concert!? A RARE treat in San Antonio!

Experience some of the best Arab musicians in the country in an intimate setting (only 50 seats available). Karen Barbee and local dancers from her Karavan Studio have the privilege of performing as part of Karen’s “Project Band” curriculum which is designed to assist dancers in their ability to improvise and rely less on planned/choreographed movements. This level of inspiration and challenge for a dancer is absolutely unparalleled in Middle Eastern Dance!

Guaranteed magic in the moment!

Online viewers – you will be sent viewing instructions on May 12 and again on May 14.
