Sadie is an inspiration and icon to fans and students around the world. She is continually headlining international belly dance festivals, but somehow finds time to also perform and teach at home in Colorado. Sadie has represented the art of Oriental Dance in front of millions of viewers on the hit show “America’s Got Talent.” Sadie will be accompanied by the Musical Ambassadors of Peace All Stars, an all-star lineup of your favorite local Middle Eastern musicians.
Monster Percussion Showcase with Gilly Gonzalez and Friends is a powerhouse of percussion assembled by Gilly Gonzalez, one of the creative lights behind Lunar Fire. Gilly is legendary for inexorably mobilizing the pelvises of unsuspecting audience members, drumming for truly epic troupes in the Colorado tribe scene.
Ari Honarvar, Musical Ambassador will make a presentation about the Northern Triangle Project. Among the many emotive moments of the evening, one particularly inspirational presentation will be made by Ari Honarvar, Iranian refugee who wields her extraordinary insight into the struggles of the asylum seeker to encourage, empower, and offer emotional support to migrants stranded at the Mexican border as a Musical Ambassador for Peace and beneficiary of the proceeds from the show.
Additional special guest appearances are yet to be announced. Stay tuned for the latest lineup!
