Salaam World Music – Live on the Lakefront Patio

Posted: July 20, 2017

On Friday, August 11, join us for an evening of world music with Salaam!

“Salaam…subtly transposes a genre of music few Americans are even aware of into a sonic realm that feels enchanting and exotic, while still strangely familiar.” – Banning Eyre, NPR

Salaam has delighted audiences for years with its expansive mix of traditional and original Middle Eastern music. Exquisitely rendered melodies are woven with stories and musings, taking the listener on a musical journey.

Their sound, while deeply rooted in maqam and entrancing Middle Eastern rhythms, is infused with the band’s fresh and innovative interpretations. They have performed throughout the US, recorded 7 albums, and been interviewed and featured on NPR’s All Things Considered. Salaam, whose name means Peace, is a musical ambassador for peaceful coexistence.

Cancellations due to inclement weather will be posted to the Colectivo Facebook page. Additional free parking is available in the lot across the street next to the Sailing Center.
