Syrian Techno

shamanic bellydance, shaggy, gold glitter

This weekend was one for the record books- a great jam in the rural green outskirts of Boston, a rocking set at Gelato Film Festival which culminated in some unexpected sweaty contact improv lead by self-proclaimed “Gangsta Belly Dancer” Francesca Ferrando, and more sweaty dancing in Gowanus with Omar Souleyman at Issue Project Room.

Still digesting  Omar’s music and live performance, his beats are delicious!

Bushwick, you are attractive.

I was tickled to have performed last weekend at Bushwick Open Studios Cabaret at 319 Scholes, really cool space with one of the most genuinely free-spirited and laid back cats I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting.

chillin' to the max

It was an awesome show in which I somewhat successfully played my first ever solo set including a new song sketch. Nobuko Hori joined me with her amazingly bright and dreamy video art and also tried out a brand new live animation using a shoebox diorama. This was my most enthusiastic, sexy (seriously, some FIIIIINE looking men and ladies), and spanish-speaking ny audience yet! We had a blast seeing everyone’s work and hanging with the BOS cabaret team. Big shout outs to Manda, Danielle, Moises, Sebastian for being so inclusive and friendly. Looking forward to getting back to sexyland Bushwick soon for more art shows and accordion contortionists!
