Unique Cultural Series: Ojala Inshallah

Sachal Ensemble: Song of Lahore

 

Serious kudos go to MDC Live Arts for what sounds like an extraordinary and thoughtful series of cultural events designed to explore the global diversity of Muslim culture. The Spanish word Ojala means” I wish” or “I hope so” and drives its meaning from the Arabic phrase “insha’Allah or God willing. The promotional brochure explains that the word is a ” reminder of the Moorish impact on the Spanish language and Hispanic identity shared by many of greater Miami’s residents. The objective of the series is to celebrate Muslim and Middle Eastern and North African communities as a valuable part of Miami’s richly diverse culture” with events of all the performing arts by stars in their respective fields. It kicks off Saturday, October 7. Read Full Post & Comments »

Marvelous Monday

 

Most people would agree (especially those of you who work) that Friday is Fabulous, but Monday? Here’s a way to make it marvelous as I discovered last Monday. It’s Motown Mondays at Sweet Liberty, a celebration of the great tunes of the Platters, Four Seasons,  The Temptations, and many more, with a good DJ and dancing. The music celebration is part of a nationwide club of DJs, producers, musicians and music enthusiasts with a passion for soul music and dancing that produce weekly events across the world, from San Francisco and New York to Austin, Honolulu and more. Sweet Liberty was named the best bar and best happy hour in SoBe by New Times in 2016 and the one of the best bars in America by Playboy.  Read Full Post & Comments »

Thoroughly Enjoyable Evening

A perfect antidote for a rainy day in Miami, or just when one needs a “pick me up” in the summer doldrums, is the new comedy at Coral Gables theater,  GableStage,” the Legend of Georgia McBride”. I found myself smiling for the entire 90 minutes, except for the time I was laughing. This is a real comedy, unlike many that are called comedies which I find more “black” than comedy. A lot of others must feel the same as GableStage just announced an extra matinee this Saturday, June 24, the day before it closes a very successful run. Read Full Post & Comments »
