Raz to rock the casbah at Rivafest

Theres nothing that sets a mood like music and the tunes of Raz Bin Sam and the Lion I Band (pictured) are the perfect complement to Ballina Rivafests night of nights event Cuisine in the Casbah.

Raz Bin Sam and the Lion I Band has a unique style and sound ranging from the gentle to high energy, and uses a combination of roots, reggae and Middle Eastern rhythms.

Cuisine in the Casbah is a one-off evening where tantalising Moroccan fare will compete for attention with the entertainment line-up. From mouth-watering tapas to tempting tagines, and with the spicy flavours of North Africa coupled with boutique wines, Cuisine in the Casbah will be a highlight of the ticketed elements of this years Ballina Rivafest.

Set in an exotically themed marquee on the banks of the Richmond River, tickets for the Saturday evening event are $50 including food and entertainment.
