It’s time to celebrate Cheb i Sabbah’s long awaited return from India, and we’re doing it at Bissap Baobab!
Join us for a night of worldly dance floor beats with the man of the hour himself, joined by DJ Amar, for a night of music reminiscent of the old days at Nickies – spinning sounds from the middle eastern, north Africa, India, the Balkans, Latin America and beyond!
We will also be featuring a performance by the ladies of FatChanceBellyDance!
Following his smashing send off at the Nickies Flashback show last fall, we return with the same vibe for Chebiji’s first night spinning in SF since his recent return from India – loaded with fresh new sounds from his trip and his signature Outernational mix.
$10-$15 sliding scale
Proceeds to benefit Chebiji’s Cancer Treatment Fund
We are pleased to be hosting another night, which is both a fundraiser and a night with Cheb i Sabbah. Since his diagnosis with stomach cancer, there has been an amazing outpouring of help through direct donations and benefit shows all over the world. All of the support has enabled Chebiji to come back and continue playing for us. He has recently returned from winter in India where he received further treatment and played a few shows.
Please join us as we welcome him back for a night where he will do what he loves most – share his music with you on the dancefloor. Your attendance is important beyond any monetary means, and all of us on the dancefloor are who are fuelling his recovery and keeping him going through this brutal fight with cancer. Financial support is definitely still needed, and funds from this night will go toward his treatment fund. The amazing physical support (the crowd on the dancefloor) at the Nickie’s Flashback sendoff party before he went to India was amazing. We invite you back, and ask you to help spread the word and bring your friends to fill the dancefloor and bring the vibe that has been alive in SF for over 20 years.
Thank you to the folks at Bissap Baobab for hosting us, and thank you to all of you who have given support and continue to support in many ways.
