Opening the show will be Raquy and the Cavemen, a duo of virtuoso drummers / multi-instrumentalists who bring some rock energy to traditional Middle Eastern rhythms. Switching between between energetic drumming compositions and intoxicating melodic pieces, the duo employs a variety of unusual instruments including the Kemenche (an ancestor of the violin), Dumset (Middle Eastern drumset), Dumbek and 11 String Guitar. They also utilize the unique art of Mongolian Throat singing. They have performed at Central Park SummerStage and LollaPalooza and have collaborated with Omar Faruk Tekbilek, Saiid El-Artist and many others.
