The sounds of the Arab world in the East Village

The golden age of Egyptian cinema during the '40s thru the '60s featured lavish song and dance numbers that have since been forgotten. But dance group Zikrayat bring the magic of these inxtoxicating dances back to life as they recreate and educate modern audiences on the significance of the music from Egypt, Lebanon, and beyond. Over 21s only.
