Raquy and the Cavemen are coming back to Northampton to do another fund raiser for the Vegan Bus! The last sold out Raquy show we put on helped raise over one thousand dollars for the bus. This time we have booked the Northampton Center for the Arts ballroom which can better facilitate the size of a crowd Raquy draws. In addition to the show we will be using the side galleries to sell vegan treats as part of the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale.
Raquy and the Cavemen from Brooklyn bring traditional Middle Eastern Music and Modern Drumming to a heady peak. Raquy has traveled to and immersed herself in the musical cultures of the Middle East, Egypt and India. Raquy performs with the Dumbek (Arabic hand drum) and the Iranian Kamanche, which is similar to a violin.
Tickets are $15 at the door.
Doors at 7:15PM, show starts at 8PM.
