Weekend Passport: Painted Caves At Hothouse Global Voices Series

Each week global citizen Nari Safavi helps listeners plan their global weekend. This week he’s joined by Ali Lubbad, lead vocalist and co-founder of Painted Caves

The band combines the sounds of traditional Middle Eastern folk and jazz instruments, so think oud, daf, trumpet and flute.

Painted Caves performs this weekend as part of the Hothouse Global Voices series in Chicago.
