The rich musical tradition of Kurdistan and its storytelling treasures weave an exotic tapestry of rhythmic songs, passion and suspense in this unusual program. From Iraqi-Kurdistan’s mysterious story The Zay Tree and Tay Falcon and the hilarious teaching tale Ruvi u Gur! (Fox and Wolf!), to the poignant Kurdish Cinderella story (gathered in the mountains of Kurdistan) colorful characters and dramatic situations are enhanced by haunting Kurdish melodies and folksongs.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
