Love, Wine, and Immortality: An Evening of Middle Eastern Music, Dance, and Storytelling
The Sahlala Band invites you to attend an evening of adventure and enchantment at the Fishbon Pescadrome. This unique event combines live music and dance with readings of ancient and contemporary stories from the Middle East. The evening’s stories will include retellings of the Ancient Mesopotamian Epic of Gilgamesh and the timeless Persian love story Layla and Majnun, as well as more modern stories about wine and love by the celebrated Turkish author Elif Şafak. The night also features dance performances by local artist Kara and visiting Pittsburgh-based performer Joanna Abel.
