Belly Dancing and Live Music Show in Sacramento

Live music Egyptian style in Sacramento.

Thursday nights are the best belly dancing nights in Sacramento, CA. Why? Come down to Kasbah Lounge in Midtown Sacramento to find out!

Starting at about 9:30pm on Thursdays and lasting till midnight, you will be treated to a belly dance show with live music. These live music belly dance shows are even a rarity in San Francisco so we are really fortunate to have them up here in Sacramento.

Flowers of the Nile Midtown Belly Dance

Belly dancing with Flowers of the Nile

1st, 3rd, and 5th Thursdays

Providing an amazing cultural experience, Flowers of the Nile perform beautiful and fun Egyptian classics ranging from folk songs to Golden Era singers like Om Kalthoum, Mohammed Abdel Wehab, and Abdel Halim Hafez to songs made famous by Middle Eastern pop star Hakim.

Belly dancing is done best to live music. The combination of Flowers of the Nile’s oud, flute, and doumbek drum with the belly dancer’s zills (finger cymbals) and dance moves blend into an enchanting show that will transport you to an authentic night at a Middle Eastern tea and hookah cafe. Kasbah Lounge has a beautifully decorated covered courtyard to keep you dry and heat lamps to keep you warm so you can enjoy the live music and belly dancing year round; even on cold rainy nights.

The Flowers of the Nile attract a great crowd whom play tambourines, clap to the rhythm, and sing along with the band to songs from their home countries. If you do not speak Arabic, you can still appreciate the beautiful music and clap along with the drum beats.  Don’t be surprised if you feel compelled to get up and dance without the belly dancer’s encouragement!

Although there is belly dancing every night of the week by many different talented belly dancers at Kasbah Lounge, live music Thursdays are truly my favorite nights to belly dance in Sacramento.
