Rajab Suleiman and Kithara will perform an outdoor concert on Friday, Sept. 9, at 6 p.m. on the Weis Center Plaza. The family-friendly performance is free and open to the public. Tickets are not required.
The rain location is the Weis Center Atrium lobby. A rain call will be made the morning of Sept. 9. Patrons are encouraged to bring a lawn chair, blanket and picnic. Complimentary cool beverages will be provided.
Rajab Suleiman & Kithara are known for Taarab music, which has defined Zanzibar's aural landscape for over a century. Taarab music is renowned for its lush mix of Arabic and western instruments, diva-worthy vocalizations and allusive Swahili lyrics. This lean and nimble group has uncovered the form's essential origins and is creating new musical conversations with its East African neighbors, historic Arabic cultural partners and allied Western forms.
For more information about this free performance, contact Lisa Leighton, marketing and outreach director, at 570-577-3727 or email.
