Laylet Amar at the Gaia's Union Refugee Crisis Fundraiser in Glastonbury

Glastonbury bellydancers shimmy on for charity

A rare and lovely opportunity arises this week for lovers of music and dance in Glastonbury. So don’t miss your chance to see live Arabic music with not one, but two fabulous dancers - and it’s all for a good cause!

The Laylet Amar Ensemble (Night of Hope) is a collaboration featuring local dancers Oona La Luna and Kash Salem performing alongside musicians Michael Burridge (oud/riq), Elvin Herrick (darbuka/guitar) and Mark Ommadom (darbuka/frame drum). This is a brand new grouping, created especially for this occasion where they will be performing alongside some of Glastonbury’s most popular local performers.

Expect a set of popular Egyptian music, enchanting and lively, to bring balmy Arabian nights to the chill of our Somerset autumn.

To catch their debut performance, and a night of music, song, dance and poetry, come along to the Gaia’s Union Refugee Crisis Fundraiser, in the Glastonbury Assembly rooms, from 8pm on Thursday 29th October. Suggested donation £3.
