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.

I have always heard of the Blind Boys from Alabama, and have enjoyed their music over the years, but this was an awesome experience! Their voices were sharp and their new upbeat tempos and music had everyone on their feet. This is an experience and memory that I wil never forget. I was not as familiar with Bettye LaVette and her music was good but the night belonged to the Blind Boys of Alabama. I hope I will have the honor of seeing them again in the near future. The only downside of the evening was the food. This is my 2nd time attending The Howard Theatre since they reopened and the food is horrible. I had grilled chicken and I couldn't even cut it with a knife. My friends had the crabcakes (which was too spicy) and my other friend had the crab artichoke dip (which was very salty). we tried to get the attention of our waiter but that was a hard task as he was moving so fast we couldn't catch him and when we did, he could barely hear what we were saying. So in the future when attending a show we will just order drinks. Oh, the water was good...
