“Electronic Beats of Middle East”
Dabke means dance in arabish and Dilan means dance in Kurdish and and they really take it serious. The crowd is dancing crazily to the beats of these powerful Musicians. The band perform new songs and traditional songs in both Arabic and Kurdish, which took a large part of the memory of popular folklore in the Middle East, especially in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and Kurdistan.
Their music is full of fast rhythms in the spirit of the celebrated oriental “Sha’bi Style”, which is popularized through the renown Syrian wedding singer Omar Suleiman. DD Band takes this style to new dimensions where the “Sha’bi Style” are integrated with the sounds of electronic, to create a wonderful characteristic Ethnic electronic music.
The authentic and strong voice of Salah Ammo with folkloric instrument Bouzouk (Ud with long neck) bring together traditional and fresh vibes to the electronic beats and fill the room with the energy, spirit and joy of Arabic Dabke and Kurdish Dilan.
DABKE DILAN – that means: come together, hold your hands and shake your hips and feel deeply connected to each other.
