Samara and Ramy, as dancer and musician, shared the stage at important concert venues, including Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center, and the Kennedy Center (to name a few), while touring with the Ibrahim Farrah Near East Dance Group. Through a question-and-answer format, Samara and Ramy will explore the history, the musical instruments, the rhythms, and key points that are special to Arabic music and dance.
