New Jazz festival in Abu Dhabi
There’s a new jazz festival taking place in the capital next week.
Jazzattak will see a line-up of eclectic jazz and blues artists (with some seriously impressive pedigrees) perform in Abu Dhabi for one night only.
The festival will be hosted at Zayed Sports City on Thursday, February 16 and will see UK singer Mica Paris perform. Best known for her 1988 top ten hit ‘My One Temptation,’ Paris also is an occasional TV presenter and actress.
Joining her on stage is Muddy Waters first born son, Mud Morganfield. Raised primarily by his mother, Mud often performs his father’s material with a voice similar in tone and timber of the Chicago blues legend.
Inspired by another American jazz icon, The Kevin Davey Quartet will be performing a special tribute to Miles Davis.
Rounding out the concert will be seven-piece soul and funk band The Diablos, jazz group El Trio and South African blues singer Sannie Fox.
