Omar Souleyman at Bonnaroo in June (more by Dana (Distortion) Yavin)
Omar Souleyman

Syrian dabke mastermind Omar Souleyman plays Summerstage tonight (7/13) as part of a pretty eccentric lineup. Ratatat headlines the show and Black Pus is also on the bill. The show is sold out.

If you missed out on getting tickets, you'll have another chance to see Omar, who will play a late show tonight (7/13) at Santos Party House afterwards, with a lineup of other "world musicians" (for lack of better terms). Bubu King Janka Nabay is on the bill, along with Azizaman and Rainstick. Tickets for this show are still on sale.

All tour dates below...

Totally off topic, but the last time I saw Omar, these two guys were just giving way too much tmi. The one guy is talking about when he was abducted by the Mukhabarat and they were all like Do you like my seven inches? Do you like my seven inches?

He sings in Arabic. Traditional Arab dress provides a scintillating clue.

10:33 as a nurse in training, I can tell you that seven inches isn't anything to go blabbering about. It's average.

"Idiots, he sings in Syrian. Fyi, his name is pronounced O-Mahr"

I think it would be Arabic, no?

he doesn't really sing, he just kind of stands there and goes "ehhhhhhhhYEAHHHHH" over and over again.

I was at the show last year, it was great. The hummus was real authentic.

Whatever. You have too much time on your hands.

This has been his new character all along! Makes sense, since he retired Borat and Ali G!
