Fresh off a trio of surreal Björk remixes and live album Haflat Gharbia (The Western Concerts)<.i>, the charismatically effete Middle Eastern star returns with his hard, fast, loud, and thrillingly distorted version of Syria’s dabke dance music. Opening is Prince Rama, whose Taraka and Nimai Larson once upon a time abandoned a Florida Hare Krishna community for a Boston art school. Their six albums explore ritual and transcendence through percussion, keyboards, dance, and eye-popping costumes.
