FULL BAND AND BELLY DANCER:
"Raq the Casbah: A World Cabaret!" is an ensemble of live musicians, singer, and BELLY DANCER Leyla. We can perform both Arabic & Mediterranean shows with all live music, song and belly dance, or choose our cabaret/variety show which includes songs from around the globe: Polish polkas, songs in French, from Germany, Spanish, Irish, Portuguese, Russian, Africa, etc. (Our band in fact includes members direct from Senegal, Russia, Palestine and Greece!)
Our show is fun, festive, family-friendly and interactive: we include socials (or "toasts") from around the world, and call and response songs for the audience to join in. We have received rave reviews from the many organizations and venues who hire us to perform regularly, including The Toledo Museum of Art, The Taste of the Nation Organization, ProMedica Corp., The Arts Commission of Greater Toledo, The Toledo Zoo, Manos, Peridino's and Treo Restaurants, among many others-- including various festivals, private parties, receptions and corporate events.
If you are looking for something DIFFERENT from the typical entertainment seen over and over again at every event you attend--and want something fresh, diverse, and NEW--something your guests will be talking about for weeks afterward--we are your group of choice, without exception--no one else does what we do. If you want to step it up with an absolute "circus" of entertainment and also "press the easy button" at the same time with one-stop shopping, we have a World music DJ, magician, fire breather and a hula hooper we can add to our team (for additional cost), giving your guests an absolutely jaw-dropping experience of eclectic, world-inclusive variety entertainment.
