I’m a world electronic folk musician. Born in the middle east, based in Philadelphia. I love evoking and hunting for meaning. and smiles.

Thanks for being in my life and on my mind. I probably miss you and hope that you are well, and if we haven’t met yet, I still wish you good health and clarity; when you are well you are a sun, so treat yourself nicely please.. Get a massage // Pet a goat // […]

It’s May, and I’m artist of the month on the Deli Mag site. That’s really nice but more importantly, I got the chance to express some thoughts on china, materialism, various social issues, and cesaria evora. My interview went exactly like this: The Deli: How did you start making music?  Tamar Dart – Little Strike: […]

I wrote an essay about my recent experience performing. Hope it’s fun for you, enjoy: Why do I play shows? “The cliché of what a rock star is – there’s something elitist about it. I never related to that. I’m an entertainer. I think of it as, you’re performing for people. It’s not a self-glorification […]

  This was nice. This. ahem. media,etc. Playing shows. I have words about it, I have thoughts. I’m performing, which….. why? why am I doing this? The short answer is people are asking, and I want to be there for them. If anybody is enjoying my music, I am grateful. I’m writing a 3 part […]

Early October, @ Little Berlin, Philadelphia. I started the show as a wave but quickly, evidently, I turned into a particle among an impressive line of similarly minded particles; Party Particles we called ourselves. Had a blast with my light homies as well as with the other bands, Supermagical and Ne-Hi. Thanks, light ! Now I’m working on a […]

    In September I played music sounds  at a local vegetable garden. There were children there; one of the children tattooed my wrist with a jazz lizard. Rock ‘n roll runs deep in this garden community, and I, myself, am no dried plum. The show was a part of the Philly Homegrown Music Fest, a brand new endeavor aimed […]

  This past Friday I wore many eyeballs and played on the street at the Frankford Ave Fracas event. I sang a little Serge Gainsbourg and some Stromae. Spicy sauces, served. I was representing FDV art collective, which is a group of artists that organize funky art events in Philly. Because, lifin’. I will be playing an […]

beautiful photos by photographer / filmmaker D1L0 from ROCKERS fest, Aug 14th. The fantastical drummer is Mr. Peter English, a true advocate of fun and a good lifer. The bouquet of friends you collect should reflect your own personal tastes (sunflowers and pineapples). You should be proud and happy of your arrangement. I love my friends […]

Had a blast playing at Lava Space on Thurs, aug 14th ! The cross-genre, head banging, spirit tickling fest ROCKERS was in full swing, and I’m extremely grateful for being a part of this magic. So much energy in each performance, from hardcore to hip hop, and even spoken word ! Happy to report I […]

  Here’s a video of Peter English and I drumming big strikes to the song Meaningful Arrangement. //Challenge: If there’s anything more drummy and enjoyable, i urge you to write it on a piece of paper, hang it on your fridge, and do it every single day. Go get em !// The show at Little […]
