Syrian singer Omar Souleyman and his synth partner, keyboardist Rizan Sa'id, get the joint jumping with their innovative brand of techno-folk, based on the Middle Eastern dance music known as dabke. Once a favorite at weddings, Souleyman's influence has now spread throughout the world, after Bjork picked him to record three remixes for her acclaimed Biophilia disc. Since then, he's released his own well-received studio album, Wenu Wenu, and appeared at the Nobel Peace Prize concert in Norway, not to mention major music festivals in Denmark, the UK and even at Tennessee's famed Bonnaroo.

Absolutely awesome! The dinner theater set up was wonderful and the food was great! We had great seats close to the stage and were blown away by the outstanding performance by the artists! Highly recommend this event and venue to anyone!
The world-famous Harlem Gospel Choir is the most renowned gospel choir in America and a preeminent gospel choir worldwide. It travels the globe, sharing the joy of faith through its music and raising funds for children’s charities. The Choir was founded in 1986 by Allen Bailey, who got the idea for the Choir while attending a celebration in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at the Cotton Club in Harlem. The Choir presents the finest singers and musicians from Harlem’s black churches and the New York/Tri-State area.
The Harlem Gospel Choir has shared its message of love and inspiration with thousands of people from various nations and cultures. The Choir strives to make the world a more loving and peaceful place, and through its music and dynamic performances to create a better understanding of the African-American culture and the inspirational music called gospel as it relates to the black church. The theme of every performance is “bringing people and nations together and giving something back.”
With every performance, the Choir shares the renaissance of Harlem’s culture with the audience.
