The lowdown What: Fatiniza album launch Where: Café del Mar, Meydan Beach, JBR The Walk When: Thursday March 7
Dubai-based Colombian rock diva Fatiniza welcomed fans and special guests to the launch of her latest album, Nothing is Impossible, on Thursday night, with an open-air set at Café Del Mar. DJ Loca warmed things up with his Latin-themed grooves until mo-funk crew Jeremiah and the Lucky Strikes took the reins for the remainder of the pre-gig. At around 9.45pm, energetic live performer Fatiniza treated fans to an hour long set, featuring hits from her debut album Confusion, including ‘Life’s A Mess’, as well as new material from the record. She was joined onstage by Dubai-based Japanese violinst Haruka Horii and Atunda Drummers, who had flown in from Africa especially, as well as several acrobatic dancers. There was even a burlesque dance in a human-sized glass and a mermaid - which surely must be a Dubai gig first.
