World Music Café is in its 6th year of presenting ethnic music performers from all over the world in an intimate, listening room atmosphere. The Arts Fest edition will feature the Afro-Cuban rhythms, melodies, and vocals of Gino Castillo (percussion) and Iliana Rose (keyboard), as well as the Middle Eastern Jazz Fusion of master oud player Peter Kfoury. Gino and Iliana will present selections that range from the root rhythms of Africa to the soaring melodies of Spain to the soulful stories of the Cuban people. Peter, accompanied by Brandi (percussion) and Dana (belly dance), will deliver a genre-breaking and truly original experience with compositions that blend Middle Eastern/North African sounds with jazz, blues, and funk performed on the oud, the direct ancestor of the lute and the grandfather of the guitar.
