New Dabka City.
by Andrew MacGregor

Dabka is a folk dance from the Levant region of the Middle East, popular in countries like Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, and Palestine. It's also popular in Brooklyn, New York, where directors Margot Bowman and Naim Naif find the eighteen-strong Freedom Dabka Group in full flow.

By day, Amer Abdelrasoul and co. are Palestinian-Americans who juggle work and family like anyone else. By night, they are dancers and musicians who celebrate traditions forged almost six thousand miles away. And yes—they are available for weddings and birthday parties.

Amid the fancy footwork and frame drums is a family dinner that confirms how important the dabka is to Palestinians young and old. It's a lovely scene full of warmth and insight, with the mum who knows the correct dates to every story a stand-out.
