Dubai?s creative artistic and musical crowd descended on the Media One Hotel?s P7 parking level last week to witness 2013?s Tiger Translate, a global event which brought together some of the UAE?s and Asia?s hottest emerging musical and creative talent.
The event saw live art displays and musical collaborations while more than 1,700 guests at the event were encouraged to unleash their creativity by joining in street and graphic art opportunities under the theme ?Streets "Streets" was to be a creative interpretation of artists and musicians in capturing the street energy of this modern city; blending it with a creative mash up of Easter and Western cultures.
The event, hosted by MC Narcy, aka The Narcicyst, was headlined with music from Pat Mahoney of LCD Soundsystem fame and former ?Bugz in the Attic? founding member Paul ?Seiji? Dolby. Kuwaiti DJ and music producer Zahed Sultan along with Dubai-based singer/songwriter, Hamdan Al Abri rounded out the live musical artists who collaborated on a unique musical performance with Tim Tapsell, winner of Tiger Translate New Zealand (November 2012) music component, who also played his award-winning entry on the night.
Shyam Allam, Senior Brand Manager, Sirocco Middle East, stated: ?The unique venue, the collaborative stylings of our artists and musicians and the phenomenal response from the creative and design community, as well as the general public, made for a fantastic alternative night in Dubai. As the home to the region?s first and largest creative and design hub, and a city with one of the most vibrant events scenes, being able to blend both and bring people together in a celebration of creativity is what the Tiger Translate exemplifies. The Media One Hotel?s P7 has been used for the first time to host Tiger Translate and we leave behind a bespoke legacy of artwork which can be enjoyed in the future.?
The Narcicyst added: ?Tiger Translate to me means that art and music collaboration in an open space is that something that is very beautiful and has never happened in a city like this before so to have it in a parking garage and to be really be flourishing with colour and music is really what Tiger Translate stands for.?
