SHOW ALERT: ROTANA AT HOTEL CAFE
3/21/17

Rotana—a compelling and currently unsigned Saudi Arabian songstress—is playing the Hotel Cafe tomorrow night, and if you give a shit about supporting strong new music, you should be there.

In an apt manner, given the current social and political climate of the United States (particularly in regard to issues pertaining to women and immigrants), the young artist released a commanding and invigorating song called "Daddy."

As she explains on YouTube,"#Daddy is the oppressor. The Bully. Daddy is anybody that requires you to dilute yourself to make them feel more comfortable. #Daddy is societal boundaries and cultural restrictions. Daddy is the obsession with celebrity and wealth. Most of all, Daddy is the voice in your head that tells you you can't .This song is the moment you step into your power. In that moment you're not scared. It's all heat and #whachugondo #daddy? In that moment you are fully sensually unapologetically you. Let #Daddy deal."

A-freakin'-men.
