2. SUFI FUSION with  ARIF LOHAR and AROOJ AFTAB
Thursday, April 26, 2012, 7pm, Wang Theater


"There are composers, then there are singers and finally there are entertainers. Meet Arif Lohar once and you know that he is an amalgamation of all of the above -- an artist extraordinaire. His jovial personality, the highly-infectious grin he sports and the trademark chimta, which he inherited from his father and always accompanies him in a performance, simply sets him apart from other exponents of folk and Sufi music. " (www.fashioncentral.pk)

ARIF LOHAR is one of Pakistan's most beloved folk singers. Singing contemporary interpretations of traditional Punjabi songs, Lohar captures the sights and sounds of modern Pakistani culture with a unique mix of pop and folk stylings. Lohar plays his beloved chimta, a traditional percussion instrument resembling tongs, and is backed by an ensemble of talented Pakistani musicians.

Born in a small village called Aach Goch in Gujrat District of Punjab, Pakistan, Arif Lohar follows in the footsteps of his father, famous Pakistani folk singer Alam Lohar. Worldwide, he is among the top Punjabi folk and pop singers.

In a special collaboration, Arif Lohar is joined by talented world music singer-composer AROOJ AFTAB. Her inspired songwriting fuses classical Pakistani and Sufi music traditions with contemporary jazz, folk and pop influences, creating a signature sound that has been described as “indigenous soul.”

 This program is part of Asia Society's ongoing initiative Creative Voices of Muslim Asia, and Caravanserai: A Place Where Cultures Meet, managed by Arts Midwest on behalf of the U.S. Regional Arts Organizations with financial support from the Building Bridges program.  Both initiatives are supported in part by the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art.

Tickets: $35 (VIP) / $20 (General) / $15 (Seniors) / $10 (Students). Discount of 20% for groups of 5 or more. Reserve by telephone (2-4400), email ([log in to unmask]), or online

3. DOLPHIN BOY
(Dani Menkin & Yonatin Mir/2011/Israel/Hebrew and Arabic with English Subtitles/72 min)
Monday, April 9, 7pm


In an Arab village in the north of Israel, a teenage boy named Morad suffers a violent attack and becomes disconnected and withdrawn. As a last resort before being committed to a psychiatric hospital, he is taken by his devoted father to Eilat for treatment with dolphins. Morad begins to speak again after months of silence, but erases his past memories and connections and refuses to return to his mother in his home village. A powerful documentary about a soul and spirit devasted by human violence and healed by the power of nature and love, Dolphin Boy follows Morad and his family over the course of four years.


With special guest speaker JUDITH MANASSEN-RAMON, producer

Part of the Port Jefferson Documentary Film Series
