Last night the Khan Al Wakala was left yelling for more after HK et les Saltimbanks’ mesmeric performance.
Clearly well versed in getting a crowd going, by the end of their diverse set, there was hardly a person left sitting and in fact many were dancing on their chairs.
Singing equally comfortably in Arabic, French and Engligh enabled the entire audience to get involved and understand the important messages behind many of their songs.
“On Lâche rien” proved especially stirring, with much of the audience chanting along, fists pumping the air.
I have never seen a group skip between genres, subject matter, and language so successfully and I’m excited to listen to some more of their music.
