Karim is a native Egyptian and performs on multiple percussion and strings instruments from around the Arab world. He orates the history of each instrument, reviews how they are made, and writes out the name in Arabic script, with pronunciation. He alters his costume throughout the show, robing in both modern and authentic clothing. He incorporates Arab Folk Dance giving a lively and participatory activities for the students. He includes the audience with rhythmic clapping, word pronunciation, line dancing, and spontaneous surveys & questions. With humor, acrobatics, articulation, and masterful audience incorporation, Karim makes a point with his percussion. His goal is to give these young audiences an uplifting impression of Arab and Muslim culture, beyond the news headlines of terror and uprising. As an Arab-American, Karim bridges the East-West cultural gap in the most profound yet entertaining way.
