IMPORTANT NOTE: We had originally planned on CHEB I SABBAH joining us for a closing DJ set. Due to a recent change in his return date from India, Chebiji will unfortunately not be able to join us, as he must remain in India for a few more weeks for some medical treatments and rest. Keep an eye out for an announcement of a date, upon his return. We will be sure to have a night with Cheb i Sabbah & Amar. The DEVOTION KICKOFF PARTY will still have the same remaining lineup, with UNMATA recently added, and DJ AMAR closing the night with a Cheb i Sabbah inspired DJ set.

Electric Vardo

Electric Vardo began in March 2005, exploring eastern gypsy culture through music, dance, visual & culinary art. The collective included co-founders DJ Amar, DJ Sep and Ultra Gypsy, with partners DJ Dragonfly, Frederique, Freyja, Sooozhyq and Calamity Sam. Electric Vardo extended family members include Dhamaal, Sila & the Afrofunk Experience, Tabla Rasa, Rena Jones, Boom Boom Bollywood, Dholrhythms, Triple Power, Lumin, Kitundu, Soulsalaam, Cheb i Sabbah, Sub Swara, Atash Maya, SooozhyQ, Beats without Borders, the Nekyia, Clandestine, Surya Dub, Non Stop Bhangra, Cheb i Sabbah, The Groove Garden, Hookahdome, Zulu Lounge… and the list goes on.

On June 30th 2006 we hosted “Midsummernight Breaks” – a smashing reunion of the original Dhamaal DJs (Janaka Selekta, Maneesh the Twister, Dhruva) combined with a live set by Sub Swara (Dhruva, Sunder, Haj), joined by Kush Arora with Bellydance performances by Frederique & Haven, and an opening set with Amar. We’ll be planning another one this year.

In April 06 we had a special night at Club Six feauring DJ SEP & CHEB i SABBAH & AMAR with FREDERIQUE & Special guest HAVEN, & a unique performance by AMAR+ FREDERIQUE+SOOOZHYQ, the closing night of Dhamaal’s 3rd annual Sights & Sounds festival.

May 2007 marked the first Cosmik Casbah - a partnership with DJ Amar & DJ Dragonfly - Celebrating the weekend of Tribal Fest, bringing night-time entertainment for the masses of Tribal / Fusion Belly Dancers who travel from around the world and spend the week in Sebastopol. We offer a different experience to complement the festivities during the day. While we have a select few performances by featured dancers Exclusively performing at the afterparty, our focus is on the music, on the dancefloor. We bring in Musical acts ranging from Beats Antique to Maduro, Cheb i Sabbah to Ana Sia to fuel the dancefloor, Live musical acts ranging from Dan Cantrell's hand-picked ensembles to Beatbox Guitar's unique ethno-acoustic sounds.

Each year we bring you something different. Different from last year, different from Tribal Fest, different each night.
