Alwan for the Arts, a peculiarly-located (on the fourth floor of an office building below Wall Street) organization focusing on Arab culture and the Middle East, will present a concert by the Glen Velez Frame Drum Ensemble of sacred-style (trance-inducing) frame drumming. It’s the final concert in a series of sacred music which I hadn’t heard about till David Garland had this group on Spinning On Air last night. Velez, if more mystical than is perhaps my taste, is a frame drum genius, and this is going to be some killer drumming. 9:30 at Alwan for the Arts, 16 Beaver Street, Friday, Sept. 26. More here.
