Al­ter­na­tive Ara­bic mu­sic is mak­ing waves in the UAE and after this month’s WASLA and Cairo Sound fes­ti­vals, it’s Jor­da­nian rock and metal in­stru­men­tal band The Alaa Faqir Project’s turn to shake things up with their con­cert to­day at The Mu­sic Room. Lead by gui­tarist Alaa Faqir (be­low left), the band will be sup­ported by Le­banon’s STILLRAW, LaGlobus and Sand­störm. Tick­ets cost Dh80 per per­son at plat­inum­list. net. Prov­ing that there’s no dearth of mu­si­cal gen­res in Dubai is the ex­per­i­men­tal sound and mu­sic club Tse Tse Fly Mid­dle East’s Noise Noise event at Casa Latina in Ibis Ho­tel, Al Bar­sha. Edgy in­die bands that are far re­moved from main­stream pop and club mu­sic such as Night­mares from Fab­ric, Golden Lion and Dubai-based solo project Os­mo­sis will be per­form­ing. Free en­try, from 8pm till late. The trend for dif­fer­ence con­tin­ues at Nir­vana 2017, a con­cert of Indo-Western fu­sion mu­sic led by Grammy-win­ning tabla player Us­tad Zakir Hus­sain, to­day at Dubai Ten­nis Sta­dium.
