If you’ve been in Dubai any longer than five minutes, odds are you’ll have heard Elie Afif playing somewhere around town, whether you knew it or not. The locally based musician has made countless appearances on the albums of numerous other artists emerging from the city’s music scene, but now it’s his turn. The Fridge and Blue Bar at the Novotel will celebrate the release of Elie Afif’s first CD, Giant Steps to Heaven, this weekend, ahead of the official launch in October, with a performance from the man himself. Expect deals on selected drinks and complimentary canapés for the first hour.
Elie Afif’s CD pre-launch party is at Blue Bar on Friday 24.
