On Thursday May 26th, I'll be (a)live performing my debut album Aberrance in Dubai - Stereo Arcade. The gig is part of a lineup, and I'll be opening for the inspirational artist, political activist, and drummer, Dave Rowntree (Blur, The Ailerons).
The opportunity to meet and listen to Dave is definitely exciting. And what makes this performance more exciting personally is the fact that I would be accompanied for the first time by so many friends (first and foremost) and amazing musicians:
- Diamond Setter (aka Kevork Keshishian): joining me on electronics
- Karim Khneisser: the beatmaster playing his famous 'prepared' drums
- Bojan Preradovic (Empty Yard Experiment, Jay Wud): the usual suspect accompanying me on voices
I would like to thank the beautiful people who made this possible: Tarek Barakat, Sonia Logo, Charl Chaka, Ziad Kamel, Vartan Keleshian, and Sam Wahab.
If you're in Dubai, you shouldn't miss this. And I shouldn't miss you.
