2005 is their 30th Anniversary! Since 1975 the Brothers’ filial bond has been at the root of their music. Known for their traditional Middle Eastern performances, the Brothers have successfully bridged the gap between traditional Middle Eastern music and American Rock n’ Roll. They tastefully mix acoustic instruments [oud, saz, kanoon, mizmar, etc.], vocals in seven languages [English, Turkish, Arabic, Armenian, Persian, French and Spanish], exotic rhythms and familiar grooves. Their music excites and motivates virtually all dancers and any audience.
The Brothers of the Baladi have headlined a zillion colleges, festivals, concert halls and clubs. They have shared the stage with Maria Muldaur, It’s a Beautiful Day, The Mamas & the Papas, 3 Mustaphas 3, Leon Redbone, Paul Horn, The Lovemongers [Heart], Poi Dog Pondering and Zachary Richard, just to name a few. Their credits include the 2000 Desert Rose Grammy Award, featured music on USA Network’s Core Culture [Oct. 2000], soundtracks for the Tony Award winning [Ashland] Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s Midsummer Night's Dream and Comedy of Errors, and soundtracks for over 50 Middle Eastern Dance videos.
Their discography includes nine recordings: Dance with Gladness , Food of Love , Beyond the Tenth , Further Journeys , Eye on the World produced by Michael Shrieve from the original Santana band , Heart of the Beast (1998) Time of Peace, Hope  and Hands of a Thousand Dances . Michael Beach, the Brothers’ vocalist, drummer and leader, was the first one to produce an educational series: Basic Middle Eastern Rhythms available on cassette and VHS video. Their music is distributed extensively both nationally and internationally.
