The Brothers of the Baladi plays Middle Eastern/world music, and performs vocals in seven languages — Arabic, Turkish, Spanish, Farsi, Armenian, Berber, French and English.
The band plays exotic rhythms mixed with familiar grooves and traditional instruments and songs fueled by guitar, bass and drums. The Brothers of the Baladi has been blazing world music trails around the globe for more than three decades.
The quartet will feature music from its 2008 Grammy nominated CD “Just Do What’s Right” as well as its other 10 CDs.
The band is currently working on its 12th CD, and bandleader Michael Beach is also about to release his second solo CD.

The lineup also includes J. Michael Kearsey on vocals, electric bass and percussion; Clark Salisbury on both acoustic and electric saz, a Turkish electric guitar; and Ashbolt Stewart on drum kit, davul and doumbek.
