ROM with Adham Shaikh

June 21st 2013, the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, ON. Season Finale of the ROM’s Friday Night Live series. There were between 3,000 and 4,000 people in attendance! People lined-up around the block, hundreds did not even make it in..

The whole show featured Adham on beats’n’bass with his new Arturia MiniBrute, Ben Johnson on Persian santoor, electric oud, çümbüş and darbuka, Torontonians Jacqueline Levitt on vids and Akimi and Amanda sporting the ultra-tribal bellydance moves.

Notably we beat the odds and highway closures on the road during the Great Calgary Flood of 2013 to get there!
