Kaynouna, the soulful, free-spirited music event that debuted earlier this year, is back for another live show on Friday August 25.
This time, the event is being hosted at Tr!beca Kitchen + Bar at JA Ocean View Hotel in JBR, and will be taking on a Coachella-inspired theme this month. Expect body art, hoola hooping entertainment, flowery, festival-themed décor and a wide range of regional and international live music courtesy of three brilliant artists.
Kaynouna Old Souls will welcome Estray, a Serbian DJ who tours relentlessly, bringing crowds his ambient house beats with traditional Eastern European sounds. Check out his chilled, relaxing, spacey sounds here:
Also taking to the stage is Wassim Younes, the Lebanese producer from Beirut, who fuses traditional Middle Eastern sounds with present day beats to create an ambient, classic-yet-modern feel. It’s easy-going, patient and raw music and promises a fascinating live set.
Rabih Rizk completes the line-up at Kaynouna Old Souls. Another Lebanese DJ, Rabih has a much more electronica-focussed sound than Younes, with slightly more uplifting and upbeat sounds blending into samples and Arabic sound bites. Foot stompingly good tunes aplenty.
Tickets are available on the door, priced at Dhs150, for what promises to be a brilliant night of live music fusing contemporary and historic sounds. Entry comes with a free drink included too, and you can book a table in advance by calling 055 829 8168.
Dhs150. Thu Aug 25, 9pm-3am. Tr!beca Kitchen + Bar, JA Ocean View Hotel, JBR (55 829 8168).
