About Ishtar: Ishtar is comprised of Melissa Murphey on clarinet, Jeff Chmielarski on electric bass, Ian Green on percussion, Julian Broughton on darbuka, and Ayleeza Quatrocchi on riq. Playing their own unique interpretation of Vintage Middle Eastern and Mediterranean folk melodies, Ishtar performs songs that were popular in the bellydancing nightclub scene during the mid-20th century. This exceptional fusion of traditional songs with surf rock elements has become: BellyRock. In 2008, Ishtar was voted as Pittsburgh’s Best Underground Band by the readers of the City Paper!
