Fête de la Musique 2019
21 June @ 6.00 pm - 11.00 pmFree, but pre-register
The French free music festival happens all round the world, featuring (mostly) Francophone acts you might not have heard of (yet). Alliance Française is running it as usual in Dubai; the always excellent Kamal Musallam is curating the gig, and it’s free (though RSVP is mandatory via the website) … Here’s the lineup:
7pm: Waheed Mamdouh Talented guitarist with a huge repertoire, playing a Latin and Arabic selection here with the Dubai String Quartet
8pm: Lama Samlagi & band Arabic vocals, classy guitar-based band (mostly acoustic)
9pm: Kamal Musallam Trio featuring Eddie Misk – Jazz fusion from a genuine star of oud and guitar
10pm: Abri & Funk Radius Funk rock from the best funk rockers in town. Be prepared to get out of your seats and dance (the gig is in Dubai Opera’s Grand Circle – which is an open space so you probably won’t get the option of a seat anyhow, but you know what we mean …)
