Smart Bets: Hisham Mayet

Libyan-born globe-trotter Hisham Mayet is (among other things) a founding member of Seattle-based recording label Sublime Frequencies (home of eclectic world music including rock and soul from Saigon, Gnawa music from Essaouira and Bollywood steel guitar). He's also produced a number of films for the label that "have been redefining the nature of ethnographic film." Mayet will present and discuss his films, Vodoun Gods on the Slave Coast (an exploration of West African possession ceremonies) and The Divine River: Ceremonial Pageantry in the Sahel, at Apothecary on Thursday, March 14. 7 p.m. sharp, $5-$7.
