Athens, W.Va. - Raquy and the Cavemen will perform Monday, September 18, 2006, at 7 p.m. in the Concord University Ballroom.

The leader of the group, Raquy, plays the Iranian Kamanche, a rare exotic bowed instrument reminiscent of an ancient violin. The group explores the fascinating genre of progressive Middle Eastern music with its rich variety of exotic instruments, pulsating rhythms and evocative scales.
