Brooklyn Nomads: A Benefit Concert

  • Indiana Landmarks Center, Grand Hall 1201 Central Avenue Indianapolis, IN, 46202 United States (map)

Presented by Center for Faith, Justice and the Arts and IndyFringe

Benefitting Exodus Refugee Immigration and Immigrant Welcome Center

The Brooklyn Nomads (NYC) will perform a two-hour musical tribute to the six countries named in the March 16 travel ban – Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

This concert is an expression of support and gratitude towards the rich melting pot of the entire United States, which enabled this group to come to life. Interpreting Middle Eastern folk music through cultural and musical backgrounds as diverse as Brooklyn itself, the Nomads put a contemporary spin on a traditional Arabic repertoire from Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, as well music from Iran, Turkey, Uzbekistan and beyond. Brass and wind, string and vocals, tap and percussion – the Nomads create a transcendent mix of voices, rich instrumentation and innovative composition.

Tickets are available here: $15 adults, $12 seniors, and $10 for ages 17 and under or students with ID. Group bookings available for 10 or more, please call 317.522.8099. 100% of proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the Immigrant Welcome Center and Exodus Refugee Immigration.
