Raquy and the Cavemen

When Middle Eastern music extraordinaire Raquy Danziger joined forces with hard rock musician Liron Peled, the result was dark, powerful Middle Eastern music with a heavy emphasis on Arabic drumming, backed by a band of Arab and Israeli musicians.

The group features internationally-acclaimed dumbek player Raquy Danziger, who has performed and taught all over the world and has recently been invited to Egypt to perform as a soloist with a local 15-piece percussion orchestra led by Egyptian percussion superstar Saiid El-Artist Raquy and the Cavemen have performed at Central Park Summerstage, Lollapalooza and Floydfest among others. Their 1st CD, “Dust” made the top 20 on the CMJ chart for multiple weeks and their 2nd CD “Jordan” debuted at the top 30 on the same chart.
