Brothers of the Baladi, a 2008 Grammy nominated band, returns to the Cozmic Café, 594 Main St. in Placerville on Saturday Nov. 10.

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.

Beach delights audiences with his diverse vocals, high energy Middle Eastern drumming on a traditional Middle Eastern drum.

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.

Local dancers and instructors Cintia, Vahana, Carolina, Sahrina and Sarpika will also perform.

The show is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 at the door.
