Library Programs

Summer Reading Program: Raqqin' the Kasbah

TarabRaqs' performance for library summer reading programs, Raqqin' the Kasbah, feature one hour of live music on traditional Middle Eastern instruments, classical and folk-inspired belly dance, and interactive lessons in rhythm, melody, dance, language, and geography. Dedicated to education through entertainment, TarabRaqs presentations engage audiences from the very young to those of advanced years with performances of dance and demonstrations of eastern vs. western melodies. Audiences learn to clap the principal rhythm of the Middle East, enunciate Arabic and Turkish words, dance a traditional line dance called the debke, and identify age-old instruments.  Click here for a pdf of the outline for Raqqin' the Kasbah.  Our booking includes a custom-designed poster in pdf form for the event with your library's name and the event details so you can make the most of promotion.

Concert Series: Magic Carpet Ride

TarabRaqs' performance for the library concert series, Magic Carpet Ride, is a one-hour concert presentation of music and dance from around the Mediterranean.  Created especially for the non-aficionado of the Middle Eastern arts, Magic Carpet Ride, our 1-hour music and dance journey takes the audience around the Mediterranean from Moorish Spain and North Africa to the Levant (think Lebanon and the eastern Mediterranean countries) and Turkey.  Our booking includes a custom-designed poster in pdf form for the event with your library's name and the event details so you can make the most of promotion.
