o Dornob are a collective of musicians spanning two generations who’ve been playing Iranian musics in San Diego since 1985. Our goals, in addition to friendship and fun, include learning the musical tradition, fostering creativity, and crossing cultural bridges.

o The Afrojazziacs play a variety of musical styles including contemporary and traditional Afro-Cuban, jazz, funk, reggae, cumbia, salsa, rumba, Brazilian, Colombian, American, Mexican and more. Its members are young professional musicians looking to bring a fresh perspective to world music.

o Jazmahalis was founded by Hamid and Farhad in 1987 to play jazzed up versions of Iranian folk (“mahali”) tunes, Persian pop covers and originals. They’ve recorded two albums: one of original pop and dance tunes (1990), and another based on the poetry of Nima and Moshiri (1992).

o Los Bandaritos play Afro-Arab music from the Persian Gulf. Bandari – “from the port” – is a powerful fusion of African rhythms and Arabic/Persian melodies. This trance-like music is used in the many countries and islands of the Persian Gulf as much for healing as for listening and dancing. Los Bandaritos offer a unique interpretation of Bandari music right here from the port of San Diego!

o ObTuse Goose are Brian Repec, Oskar Beckmann, and Tony Econom.
