Join Baksana in celebrating Jamballah NW, Portland’s own weekend-long belly dance festival featuring dozens of showcase performances and workshops in multiple genres of belly dance. We’ll kick off this year’s main event by hosting a very special pre-party dinner and show with live music and dancing at the gorgeous Iraqi restaurant – Dar Salam Lazurdi in Downtown Portland. The restaurant will be offering a delicious (seriously fantastic) buffet with *vegan & gluten-free* options! Doors will open at 7pm to arrive and get settled. Music and dance performances will start at 7:30 sharp and wrap up around 8:30 when we’ll open the doors to the public to enjoy some wonderful socializing, food, and perhaps a little more music!

Tickets are $30 *which includes buffet dinner and reserved seating*

Every summer is busking season! Look for Baksana at markets, festivals, street fairs. We’re available for booking at private parties and events as well! Busking is an age old custom of street performing for tips. It spans multiple cultures, and is an art in and of itself! Bridging the gap between enchantment and the everyday, street performance strives to bring celebration and creativity to all walks of life. We hope to see you strolling the streets this summer while enjoying live music and dance. Say hello and if you like what you see, leave us a tip or buy a CD. Scheduled busking for 2017 will be Last Thursdays on Alberta for June, July & August
