Galeet Dardashti's "The Naming" and Sarah Aroeste, NYC, 12 Dec 2009

DivahnGaleet Dardashti

Women's Night at the Sephardic Music Festival: Galeet Dardashti's The Naming followed by performances by Smadar and Sarah Aroeste

This is the story of why the brilliant Queen of Sheba shaved her legs, how the stunning Vashti laid down the line for her drunken husband, and how a mysterious witch spoke King Saul's doom and then served him a nice dinner. Dardashti's forthcoming solo release and multimedia performance, The Naming, draws on the Persian music deep in her bones to transform the ghostly outlines of Biblical women into full-blown flesh-and-blood personalities, combing emotional Middle Eastern-inflected musical delivery with powerful storytelling.
