Ready to break out those hot summer dance moves? Get yourself to Billyburg for this show, featuring Syrian star Omar Souleyman, whose fame has been fueled by three Sublime Frequencies compilations, a hit YouTube video and a potent endorsement from Björk on NPR. His manic electronic take on the Syrian dabke is designed for manic dancing at weddings, and attracted the attention of venerable electronic whiz Kieran Hebden—a.k.a Four Tet—who produced Souleyman's latest disc, Wenu Wenu.
