MUSIC by SARIYAH IDAN May will be featuring the singer songrwriter, Activitst, poet and actress Sariyah Idan and her band all the way from Los Angeles! Sariyah Idan (Pronounced: Sah-ree-yah Ee-dahn) is an internationally touring singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and actor-playwright rooted in the culture of poetry. Her evocative and eclectic music blends multiple genres. Trained in jazz & folk, hip-hop & soul educated, Ms Idan is heavily influenced by the music of her Jewish roots, the classic sounds of dub/reggae and the celebration of cultural fusion found in Latin American music styles. With a passion for ethnomusicology and social movements, Ms Idan intentionally mixes different genres not simply as a sonic fusion but as an expression of social activism and is indebted to her mentors, including Melanie DeMore, for guiding her in this practice. She has shared stages with Pete Seeger, Lee “Scratch” Perry and Yusef Lateef as well as recordings with Marcia Griffiths and Caron Wheeler on Dubblstandat’s album Woman In Dub. Fusicology reviewed the release of her debut solo EP Deeper Than Skin in December 2014 as “powerful, soulful, spirited songs filled with stories of joy, struggle, love and social justice”.

La Pêche is an unique voice in the bay area music scene, as the only band to focus on the very upbeat and melodically rich Romanian music. Yet their extensive knowledge of musics from the Balkans, Turkey and the Jewish tradition, allied with a strong artistic sense of composition make them one of the most versatile group available today. Their performances are always an irresistible call to dance, and a dazzling feast for the ears! https://www.facebook.com/events/1721293488086654/

Each season, native Bay Area artists collaborate with top musicians, performers and chefs to create a unique community art event in the Mission District. The exhibition invites viewers in a popular but also neighborhood-friendly and socio-politically aware community space to view art created by SF Bay Area natives of diverse heritage and experience. Now more than ever ARTE Y TAPAS strives to create venue space for working Bay Area artists, with acute awareness and in defiance of an era of rapid music venue and art gallery closures. "Born in the Bay" celebrates a thriving SF Bay Area arts community and shines the spotlight on visual artists each with unique vision and techniques for observation and expression.
