On February 6th a devastating 7.8-magnitude earthquake struck the border region between Turkey and Syria, followed nine hours later by a horrific 7.5-magnitude aftershock.

This was the most powerful earthquake the region has seen in almost a century. The horrifying death toll has soared past 20,000, with freezing temperatures and snow falling.

Relief organizations are working diligently to support the rapidly changing needs on the ground as the devastation continues to unfold. Rescue teams are working in the hardest-hit areas where survivors remain trapped under rubble.


100% of funds raised from ticket/raffle sales and donations for this evening of live performances will go these accredited on-the-ground relief efforts in Türkiye & Syria:

Featuring performances by:

Rachid Halihal
Scott Wilson
Umut Yaşmut
Enis Ozguner
Carol Tandava
Kazuki Kozuru-Salifoska

   and more!

This evening will be an event to remember!

Adding to the excitement will be a special raffle with unique items from the world of Middle Eastern Dance & Music, including:

Musical Instruments
Works of Art
Limited Edition CDs
Dance & Music Lessons
   and more!

Immerse yourself in the music and dance of this region as we join together to support them in this time of desperate need.
