Americanistan performs music inspired by the Middle East and Mediterranean. Bellydance music is our specialty. Ethnic instruments such as the kanun, harmonium and ney flute are paired with the rhythms of the dumbek, tambourine, and frame drum.

Americanistan frequently appears in shows featuring our music as well as performances by special guest dancers. We also perform at concerts, festivals, workshops, belly dance shows, parties, weddings, and other special occasions. 

Our musicians are available for studio work for film, plays, radio, etc. We can create the exotic, ethnic sounds you are after, on your time line. All of our musicians are adept at improvisation and we also compose. We can play anything from authentic ethnic tunes to music that creates a mood.
