Win Tickets to Caravanserai Dance Party

CARAVANSERAI

This World Music dance party derives its name from Caravan Serai, an ancient  roadside motel that gave weary Silk Road travelers a safe place to park their camels, count their furs, and maybe even sip on some wine. Hot food, hand-washing stations, and live music were a must. Luckily for us, sans camels, Chicago has all those things, without having to experience the austere life styles of the vagabonds of yore. So, grab your headdress and gold coins, lace up your leggings, and join a night of music and dance that celebrates the weary traveler in all of us! The dance party lineup includes gypsy surf band Lamajamal, raucous brass/reed sextet Black Bear Combo, abstract international spinmeister DJ Warp and Middle Eastern dance performer Erika Ochoa, among others.

Sunday January 20  from 7  to 11 pm
1200 W. Randolph, Chicago, Illinois 60607
$12

Join us at a live world music show tomorrow at 9 pm!

I will be co-hosting a live world music radio show tomorrow (September 11) at 9pm. Our guest is Black Bear Combo, a Chicago brass/reed band whose sound is a raucous mutt channeling the common energy between traditional music from eastern Europe and the Balkans, punk rock, and free jazz. 

If you are in Logan Square or Wicker Park tune us in at 1710 am (T.R.I.B.E.S. Radio). The rest of the world can watch us online at this link: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/Quennect4
