Oriental Fusion Show
Producing and performing shows of her own in the Oriental fusion fashion, many dancers come together to perform their own unique choreography to music and fit a certain theme. Samarra and the dancers drawn to these shows are excited about exploring every possibility of blending an array of other dance genres with the classic Middle Eastern style. They seize the opportunity to be creative and relish in hip-swaying dance to great music. These shows typically take place at the All Asia Cafe, and feature more traditional dancing with a live music segment. This venue plays music that is most adequately described as a Middle Eastern-style improvised jam. The region's most talented musicians come from a variety of different backgrounds and mix their unique skills and cultures to delight crowds with a music experience that won't be found anywhere else.
