BAK, basis voor Yallah Sabaya

After the success of the first editions, Yallah Sabaya is back.

Yallah Sabaya, meaning in Arabic ‘Come ladies! Enjoy yourselves!’, is a special evening just for women, an evening where dance and music connect women from around the world.

All women, from every country or culture, are welcome to meet, chat and dance. Yallah Sabaya is organized by Welkom in Utrecht, De Voorkamer, and BAK, basis voor actuele kunst and Yallah Yallah.

As this is a night for you to relax and enjoy we ask not to bring children, but your female friends very welcome.
