One of the few singing snake dancers in the SF Bay Area, Surreyya is a highly sought after performer.  She sings in English and Turkish, and dances regularly solo as well as with the bands MastykaHazerfan and Tellus818.  Surreyya’s performance is full of excitement, and is inspired by Egyptian, Turkish and American Tribal flavors of dance.  A passionate and creative performer, she also incorporates props (sword, cane, snakes, veil, finger cymballs) into her repertoire.  She also thrives on audience participation, often giving impromptu lessons and adding a comedic twist to her performance.

Pat Reynolds from Rhythms of Punjab

What is Bhangra?– one of the happiest and most exuberant forms of movements that originated in the Punjab region of North India. Traditionally performed at harvest season in the villages of Punjab, Bhangra is now known as a folk dance that is done all over India during family celebrations and festive occasions. If you have ever gone to an Indian wedding and witnessed people bouncing joyfully in circles, shrugging their shoulders, and laughing endlessly, you have experienced Bhangra. In Bollywood movies, its often shared during scenes reflecting such colorful family celebrations.

We will be bringing you a great mix of dance performances each week to kick off the nights, followed by DJ sets and improv performances. We have some amazing performances lined up for the next couple of months. Please join us and help us to spread the word for our new weekly with rotating DJs each week.
