> Yes, you read that right, there will be two Haflas at BAM this year! One on
> Friday night and another one on Saturday night. There will not be any formal
> competition this year, just a fun excuse to dance and drum. Musicians with
> other forms of Middle Eastern instruments will, of course, also be very
> welcome! The Friday night Hafla will be just that; a fun drumming and dancing
> party with refreshments provided for the dancers and musicians. The Saturday
> night Hafla will also be a fun party, with refreshments for the dancers and
> musicians; however, Their Excellencies Santiago and Elisabeth will have gifts of
> largess (donated by HE Gwendolen McIver) to hand out to the dancers on Saturday
> night. It is my understanding that there are a variety of different types and
> qualities of largess, and that there will be some attempt made to reward those
> dancers who demonstrate more skill and enthusiasm accordingly, and that
> performance on both nights will be taken into account. Drummers and other
> musicians will also be rewarded on Saturday night for their skill and enthusiasm
> during both Haflas.
> Both Haflas will be held in the BFT. If you don't know where that is, just ask
> someone, or follow the sound of the drums. ;-)
> The primary purpose of these Haflas will be just to have fun, and promote
> participation in and enjoyment of Middle Eastern music and dancing. Dancers and
> musicians of all skill levels are invited to participate, but anyone who is
> found to be disruptive or unable to hold a good beat will be politely asked to
> bow out. There may be a few loaner drums, but I cannot say how many or what
> quality they will be. Any drummer who is a beginner, who would like to learn
> enough to have fun participating in the Hafla, is welcome to search me out for
> some instruction during the day. Just look for the tall gentleman with silver
> hair and a blue metal drum. If I can't help you, I will try to help you find
> someone who can.
> Hoping to see you all there!
