Zikrayat - Arabic Music and Belly Dancers

This Long Island City-based ensemble considers improvisation a critical element of their performances. With a classical Takht lineup of oud, nay, violin, qanun, riqq and tabla, in addition to folk instruments like buzuq, mizmar and rababa, Zikrayat captures the original spirit of Arabic music. The group's dancers focus on authentic Egyptian Raqs Sharqi.
