Musical Ambassadors of PeaceMusical Ambassadors for Peace presents Sadie, MonsterPercusion Showcase with Gilly Gonzalez & Friends and more in a performance to benefit Musical Ambassadors for Peace, a local non-profit that funds musicians working to build cross-cultural bridges, honoring and preserving indigenous musical traditions and helping to heal those traumatized by war.
Sadie is an inspiration and icon to fans and students around the world. She is continually headlining international belly dance festivals, but somehow finds time to also perform and teach at home in Colorado. Sadie has represented the art of Oriental Dance in front of millions of viewers on “America’s Got Talent.” Sadie will be accompanied by the Musical Ambassadors of Peace All Stars, an all-star lineup of your favorite local Middle Eastern musicians.
Monster Percussion Showcase with Gilly Gonzalez and Friends is a powerhouse of percussion assembled by Gilly Gonzalez, one of the creative lights behind Lunar Fire. Gilly is legendary for inexorably mobilizing the pelvises of unsuspecting audience members, drumming for truly epic troupes in the Colorado tribe scene.
Ari Honarvar, Musical Ambassador will make a presentation about the Northern Triangle Project. Ari is an Iranian refugee who wields her extraordinary insight into the struggles of the asylum seeker to encourage, empower, and offer emotional support to migrants stranded at the Mexican border as a Musical Ambassador for Peace and beneficiary of the proceeds from the show.
Additional special guest appearances are yet to be announced.
