Power vocals and al fresco clubbing down at Barasti beach
Time Out Dubai staff
Some 5,000 clubbers were packed onto the sand at Barasti last Thursday to see the legendary soul diva Jocelyn Brown. The American singer opened with a rousing a capella version of Somebody Else’s Guy and managed to give everyone goosebumps and bring on a mammoth round of applause. The crowd kept jumping as the classics kept coming; highlights for us were ‘Ain’t no Mountain High Enough’ (the catchiest song in the world) and ‘A Star is Born’. Alongside the beats, Jocelyn ramped up the crowd participation while Barasti offered a visual and audio treat with a hoofing VOID soundsystem and screens, plus fire breathers and stilt walkers. More please.
