Bio

Cindy Romero - Cindy was introduced to belly dance and its music at Scarborough Faire by Isis and The Star Dancers. She joined the Star Dancers and eventually became an instructer. While at Isis' studio, she began taking doumbek from Ahmed. Cindy has been fortunate to attend classes and workshops by Jamal Mohhamed, Susu Pampanin, Issam Houshan, Reda Darwish, Radu, and Sean Le Blanc of Wind and Fingers. In addition to her work with Sombati, she is one half of the musical duo known as Cybele.

Steve Mixon - a native of Houston, Steve is a veteran of the Santa Cruz California klezmer and belly dance scene. He is a founding member of the Keller Folk Music Society, a local music meet-up group of acoustic musicians who share songs in a friendly, supportive atmosphere. Steve is a killer instrumentalist, and has an astounding knowledge of eastern European and middle eastern music, in addition to traditional western folk and bluegrass music. He can be found frequently changing the strings on one of his instruments while listening to one of his many 78 RPM records of Macedonian dance tunes in 17. His instruments include octave mandolin, mandolin, mandocello, accordion, bass, and guitar.

Belinda Daughtry - another Texas native, Belinda hails from the once rural burg of Southlake, though the part of Southlake she grew up in is now under an Ikea or something. Nowadays Belinda might be Mansfield's queen of the Klezmer clarinet. Her other instruments include the hurdy gurdy (yes!), percussion, saxophone, and synthesizer. Belinda began her music education in the 5th grade, playing clarinet and alto saxophone throughout junior high and high school. Her other early performance experience includes the Six Flags Employees Band and the Dallas Tornado Soccer Band. She began belly dancing at the age of 16, buying her first drum two years later. Her performance experience includes the Belly Dance Treasures Stage at Scarborough Faire and numerous other studio haflas and stage shows. Belinda's musical education includes studying under instrumental and doumbek maestros such as Jamal Mohamed, Susu Pampanin and Issam Houshan. In addition to her work with Sombati, she is one half of the musical duo known as Cybele.

Eric Covington - a Fort Worth native, Eric's day job involves herding cats in the aerospace industry. He parlays his hard won organizational skills into building set lists and coordinating rehearsals. Eric also writes the occasional tune for the group. His main instrument is guitar, which he is a little better at playing than he usually lets on. Other instruments include accordion, bass, and hand percussion. In addition to performing with Sombati, Eric is a member of the electronic music collective known as Sooterkin.
