Arts Canteen presents
Arab-A-Dub night Featuring El Jeha
Saturday 16 December
In a nutshell
A night full of Dabke sounds and Shamstep style, warmed up with combia and dancehall tunes to be served hot at the Rich Mix dance floor.
Dub-key (M.D.B.K) is the cross-path of musical genres in exodus, in a quest after the sound of home and roots. It's where Dub and Ragga meets traditional Palestinian Dance and flow of Dabkeh. Established in 2009, DJ/Producer Bruno Cruz and Performer/MC Walaa Sbait brought the Dabkeh Dance and Mijwiz sounds to match with the beats of hip-hop and Dancehall, announcing the emergence of the Arab-A-Dub style. Dub-key is a bridge of sound and movement which connects the shores of the Caribbean with the hills of the Galilee into one path of knowledge towards justice and freedom.

What to Expect
A night of dabke dance and circle dancing and you’ll still surely see lanky legs clumsily stomping to the rhythm.
