Sat., June 23

An annual event that draws thousands to the Cleveland Museum of Art to hear exotic bands that normally don't come through town, Solstice has become the museum's signature summer event. Tonight's installment takes place at 8 p.m. The lineup includes the Moroccan-born Hatim Belyamani (aka HAT), a guy who makes music based on filming and remixing the sounds and images of his native country's Arabic, Amazigh and sub-Saharan African origins; and Hello Psychaleppo, the brainchild of young Syrian music producer Samer Saem Eldahr, who draws from dubstep, drum and bass, electro and trip-hop to create "a journey away from boundaries of style." The lineup also includes LADAMA, a group of four women from across the Americas who produce pop and soul-infused songs that they sing in Spanish, English and Portuguese; and Ravid Kahalani's Yemen Blues, a band that brings a "polyglot mix of music from Yemen and West Africa." As always, CMA tickets sold out months ago; secondary markets could help. (Niesel)
