Omar Souleyman in Chicago!

I snapped some flicks of Omar Souleyman when he came to town last week for Chicago Summerdance fest in Grant Park. His set was off the chain, everybody from white college dorks to children were dancing and clapping along. His keyboard player was amazing to hear live, and people were throwing money (see above). I’m honored to have been able to witness swagger such as this in my lifetime.

    I know what you’re saying. These type of shows don’t come along often.
