Had long planned to organise a night of female talent to help other females to help themselves.. and thought and ambition became actuality last Tuesday 22nd February.
Held on a Tuesday, Dubai’s traditional ladies night at The FRIDGE in Al Quoz.. we thought to twist the concept of Ladies night.. not the usual cheap drinks and sleazy guy style party..but a showcase of some of Dubai’s finest talent. Artists Flordeliza & Stephanie Neville, Tahnee, Noush likes sploosh, DJ Zahra Hala Ali, Hind Shoufani and yours truly gracing us with art, music & spoken word poetry.
My favourite comment on the night I quote from Zahid Howladar,
“What can I say? It was Ladies Night, and the ladies owned it. The guy-bashing was easy to tolerate (!) when Hind was nothing short of entertaining as host & performer; Tahnee opened with delightfully unique vocals in an acoustic set; Mestiza ‘smashed it’ with a cover of Bob Marley’s “No Woman No Cry” that had a lil’ Mestiza flava injection; Hala delivered poetic lyricism to win gold at any Linguistic Entertainment Olympics; and Noush wrapped up with a set blessed by her honey coated tonsils. That the ladies looked great, and there were snacks available too was obviously good for the guys…! Congratulations to the organisers/ performers for a great night! )”
“….When I wrote this original post… I think it’s clear I was bewitched by the sight of fine women, the voices of sirens, and the availability of cheesy puffs.”
