There are great musicians! Playing the dumbek behind me at MemSahib is Dale Hall, one of the talented percussionists who often support us at charity events and teach us about Middle Eastern rhythms in some of our classes.

Behind Shira is Gilberto, who joined us at a Germantown performance to make the occasion truly special.

The Blue Dragons (including Aleta, her dumbek and me) are a local band who often perform with Oriental dancers, with an interesting and unique ethnic/fusion sound.
