H.E. Hoda Al Khamis-Kanoo Founder & Artistic Director Abu Dhabi Festival Over the last 10 years, Abu Dhabi Festival has become one of the most prominent arts festivals in the Arab world, and a key player on the festival circuit worldwide. For an entire decade, this annual symphony of cultures has celebrated the spirit of ‘Bilad Al Khayr’ (The Land of Blessings), the legacy of the founding Father of the Nation, the late Sheikh Zayed Al Nahyan. It has welcomed artists from the four corners of the world and engaged the people of the UAE through unique performances, concerts, exhibitions, workshops and talks. The 2013 edition celebrates this ‘Decade of Distinction’ in style with a breathtaking main programme featuring the legendary Plácido Domingo, as tribute to this year’s Country of Honour, Spain. Proud of its role as a ‘Festival of Firsts’, Abu Dhabi Festival 2013 adds to its impressive roster of 7 commissions, 4 world premieres, and 13 Arab premieres. The world premieres ‘Poème Orientale’ by Bechara El Khoury and ‘The Rahbani Legacy’ by Oussama & Ghadi Rahbani, mark the birth of two significant new creations for Arab artistic expression. We are also proud to present two new

commissioned sculptures by Mattar bin Lahej and Jalal Luqman as well as a commemorative coin by Hassan Massoudy. And for the first time in the UAE, the Festival is delighted to welcome the Mariinsky Ballet and Orchestra, the Czech Philharmonic, Gilberto Gil, YUNDI, Joshua Bell, and Bryn Terfel. Each year, the Abu Dhabi Festival takes children and young people on a voyage of discovery. In addition to the ticketed performances, it welcomes thousands of students and the general public to free concerts, performances and workshops, many of which pay homage to the UAE’s rich cultural heritage. In 2013, the Festival presents innovative initiatives including the nationwide tour of Habib Ghuloom Al Attar’s latest production ‘Bil Arabi’ as well as the tantalizing trail of traditional tales by the students of Zayed University developed under the guidance of master storyteller, Abdul Aziz Al Musallem. The Abu Dhabi Festival is a unique and unforgettable experience. Join us in celebrating the UAE as a capital of culture. Join us in marking a Decade of Distinction!

Creating Opportunities: Mubadala in the community Everything Mubadala does links back to supporting the diversification of Abu Dhabi. This includes developing key sectors of the economy which will establish the UAE as a global center of excellence in multiple industries to creating key social infrastructure in sectors such as healthcare and education. Generating opportunities for current and future generations is a common thread that runs through all Mubadala activities. Mubadala leads and supports a number of initiatives designed to engage and inspire younger generations to participate in these opportunities, while also encouraging a healthy and active lifestyle for all.

The Trinidadian-German singer, real name Nestor Alexander Haddaway, explains the chart-buster arrived in the middle of the night during a recording session. “We just used ideas that were fresh at that time and tried to make something that nobody else had,” he says. “The song came really fast. I had the idea for the melodies in about 45 minutes and the total structure of the song was done in a day and a half.”

Release date: Friday What they say: “It feels like it’s time to move on and do something radically different,” said Muse’s bassist Christopher Wolstenholme. What we say: Arguably this year’s most-anticipated rock release, the record’s lead single Madness finds the British trio embracing a more subtle pop sound, while the Olympic theme song Survival is suitably epic.

La Bouche

The dance group scored hits with Sweet Dreams (1994) and Be My Lover (1995). The group were an international operation with the Americans Melanie Thornton and Lance McRay contributing vocals over beats by the German producer Frank Farian of Boney M fame. Thornton tragically died in 2001 in a plane crash. McRay still tours under the name La Bouche with another female vocalist.

Culture Beat

• Despite none of the original performers –

the singer Tania Evans and the rapper Jay Supreme – remaining, the group still tour on the back of their 1993 hit album Serenity, home to the monster singles Mr Vain and Got to Get It.

‘I was offered everything I’d ever wanted at exactly the same time. I thought I’d be able to do it all to a high standard, and have a personal life, and obviously that wasn’t realistic,’ says the British rapper Plan B. ‘I’m going to have to be very careful about what to do next’

Taylor Swift Red Release date: October 22 What she says: “From intense love, intense frustration, jealousy, confusion, all of that, in my mind, all those emotions are red. There’s nothing beige about any of those feelings.” What we say: Swift promises a warts-and-all outlook with her fourth album. We wonder if any of these songs contain another kissoff to John Mayer.

50 Cent Street King Immortal

For the record

Robbie Williams Take the Crown Release date: November 5 What he says: Announcing the album on his website, Williams says his “main priority was to write what I consider, and hopefully what the world would consider, to be hits. I’m very excited.” What we say: Williams hopes this album will be his big comeback after his 2009 lacklustre effort Reality Killed the Video Star. His recent Take That reunion is already paying off, with his fellow member Gary Barlow producing this album’s summery lead single Candy.

Release date: tomorrow

50 Cent

Alicia Keys

What they say: “He’s taking it back to the old 50,” Hitboy, 50 Cent’s producer, told MTV. “And he had some new records that were some different-sounding stuff, too. I’m excited to see how people react to it.” What we say: 50 Cent experienced a flop record in 2009. With the hip-hop game generally moving so fast, it will be interesting to see if fans will still be interested in what Fiddy has to say.

It may have been billed as a solo Eminem show, but hip-hop heads took further pleasure in seeing the superstar rapper joined on stage by Royce Da 5’9”. Eminem credits his fellow rhymer as an influence and they presently work together as a duo under the Bad Meets Evil moniker. 5’9” continued to party after Sunday’s performance with an extra set at Étoiles at Emirates Palace alongside Eminem’s tour DJ Alchemist and the hip-hop producer Fredwreck.

Now you see him, now you don’t. The young rapper Tyga made a lightning quick visit to Abu Dhabi on Sunday night to perform at Movida Abu Dhabi. According to sources, the rapper behind the hit club-rap track Rack City stayed fewer than 24 hours in Abu Dhabi and returned to the US hours after his performance.

Amber Lounge reaffirmed itself as the best place to party. The weekend saw Kylie and Dannii Minogue, Natasha Bedingfield and Eva Simons make appearances, plus the grand prix winner Kimi Räikkönen and his fellow F1 drivers Jenson Button and Michael Schumacher. Music was care of Taboo of The Black Eyed Peas who got the well-heeled crowd dancing, but his Friday night invitation to the ladies to join him on stage was apparently expected to be extended on Sunday night by one lass. She jumped on stage to bust some moves, only to be coaxed down by security. Nonplussed, she made a beeline for the stage a few more times before Taboo’s platform was taken over by guests.

What they say: the band’s lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong declared the album as “the best music we’ve ever written, and the songs just keep coming”. What we say: This is the first of a trio of albums to be released over the next three months. Judging by the tracks Kill the DJ and Let Yourself Go, the group ditched their rock-opera vibe for a punchier sound.

What she says: “The album represents a new me in every way,” Keys told CNN. What we say: Keys will talk about being a new mother, but the album is not full of sleepy ballads – we think the R&B star is too classy for that.

The former Ace of Base singer, now performing solo, says the song sounded initially upbeat before her sister and fellow Ace of Base bandmate Linn Berggren suggested a change to a darker sound. “The story is about a woman who is always leaving and that is because the woman is not whole in herself,” she says. “I think by changing to minor [chords] people can hear that sadness and relate to that song. “I really believe the most beautiful songs are sad sounding. The album Happy Nation was actually built from the material of All That She Wants – that’s why the album is darker as well. It all fed from each other.”

Ilpo Musto / Rex Features

The singer Marty Cintron, who is performing solo under the No Mercy tag, explains that Where Do You Go was born from the leftover production work from the group’s previous single, a cover of Everything But the Girl’s Missing. “The song was written around the formula of Missing,” he says. “We got a team together, a couple of German authors wrote the lyrics and it was my idea to put Spanish guitars on it.” Cintron, who is based in Miami, says he still gets a thrill when hearing Where Do You Go on the radio. “I was driving in Poland the other day and the song came on, like, three times in the car,” he says. “In Miami people still play the Spanish version of it. It’s amazing.”

Biggest hit song: All That She Wants Album: Happy Nation/The Sign (1992) Chart performance: No 1 in at least 10 territories including the US, the UK, Australia and Germany

Graham Stone / Rex Features

The guitarist Richard Drummie says the song was the first written for the group’s Indian Summer album. His enthusiasm for the track initially diminished when the record company asked the duo to contribute it to the film Pretty Woman, starring the up-and-comer Julia Roberts. “I was dead against it. I didn’t know who Julia Roberts was and Richard Gere’s career was kind of over by then and it just sounded like another Valley Girl film to me,” recalls Drummie. “We did meet Julia Roberts eventually and she did say: ‘Hey, you guys have a song in my film.’ And we said: ‘Yes we do,’ and then Keifer Sutherland appeared and whisked her away pretty quickly. I think he thought one of us was trying to take a run at her or something.”

Helmed by the German producers Michael Münzing and Luca Anzilotti, Snap! reached their peak when their hard dance beats were matched with the American rapper Turbo B. Their collaboration resulted in the hits I Got the Power (1990) and Rhythm Is a Dancer (1992). Turbo B quit in 1992 before rejoining the group for another limited spell in 2000.

If there was ever a rapper big enough to fill such a prized slot as the race-day concert, it would have to be Eminem. However, he did have his work cut out for him on Sunday night. For one thing, the mixed crowd was very unlike the audiences at the music festivals he’s used to headlining. Youths, families and petrol heads don’t normally get along when it comes to musical tastes, hence previous race concerts – from Paul McCartney and Prince to Beyoncé – were big enough to bridge the divide. After a long day watching the race, the 20,000-strong crowd needed relief in the form of a few big singalongs. Eminem once again showed his deft command of both the hip-hop and pop worlds with a greatest-hits

arts&life

set full of anthems, but with enough space to display his gritty rap skills. Backed by an eight-piece band and his hype man Mr Porter (also known as the Kon Artist from the rap collective D12), Eminem stepped on to the stage to the urgent riffs of Won’t Back Down before launching into the forceful 3AM. The crowd well and truly warmed up with Square Dance. Backed by its stonking beat, everyone had their hands in the air as Em tore through defiant couplets such as “a pit-bull off his leash/ All this peace talk can cease”. The energy was maintained with the trunk rattlers So Bad and White Trash Party. Eminem acknowledged the crowd constantly, mentioning Abu Dhabi dozens of time on stage. In song, however, he was in his own space.

He marauded across the stage, spitting lyrics while looking down at the floor. Each verse seemed excavated rather than resting on the tip of his tongue. It was left to Mr Porter to make up the on-stage grin shortage. However, a steady supply of levity eventually surfaced with the big anthems I Need a Doctor and Love the Way You Lie. Hip-hop heads received a real treat when his fellow Detroit native Royce Da 5’9” joined Eminem on stage as the duo Bad Meets Evil. The fiery performance of Fast Lane was utterly brilliant. It was the essence of hip-hop: two dope MCs trading rhyme after rhyme over a bass-heavy beat. Perhaps thanking the audience for this spot of indulgence, Em-

inem quickly followed it up with Stan which, a decade on, remains a high watermark for the genre. A Dr Dre-produced medley of My Name Is and The Real Slim Shady was performed before the set was rounded off with Without Me, Not Afraid and the encore Lose Yourself – the latter cementing itself as the Eye of the Tiger for this generation. The hip-hop party continued late into the night with the Chicago rapper Lupe Fiasco taking to the Skybar stage at the du Forum and Royce Da 5’9” and Eminem’s tour DJ The Alchemist playing their own show at Étoiles at Emirates Place. But t he n ight belonged to Eminem. His performance may have not been to everyone’s taste, yet it thrilled, challenged and remained compelling throughout – increasingly rare qualities to find in to day’s popular music. sasaeed@thenational.ae

The Trinidadian-German singer, real name Nestor Alexander Haddaway, explains the chart-buster arrived in the middle of the night during a recording session. “We just used ideas that were fresh at that time and tried to make something that nobody else had,” he says. “The song came really fast. I had the idea for the melodies in about 45 minutes and the total structure of the song was done in a day and a half.”

music

Release date: Friday What they say: “It feels like it’s time to move on and do something radically different,” said Muse’s bassist Christopher Wolstenholme. What we say: Arguably this year’s most-anticipated rock release, the record’s lead single Madness finds the British trio embracing a more subtle pop sound, while the Olympic theme song Survival is suitably epic.

La Bouche

The dance group scored hits with Sweet Dreams (1994) and Be My Lover (1995). The group were an international operation with the Americans Melanie Thornton and Lance McRay contributing vocals over beats by the German producer Frank Farian of Boney M fame. Thornton tragically died in 2001 in a plane crash. McRay still tours under the name La Bouche with another female vocalist.

Culture Beat

• Despite none of the original performers –

the singer Tania Evans and the rapper Jay Supreme – remaining, the group still tour on the back of their 1993 hit album Serenity, home to the monster singles Mr Vain and Got to Get It.

‘I was offered everything I’d ever wanted at exactly the same time. I thought I’d be able to do it all to a high standard, and have a personal life, and obviously that wasn’t realistic,’ says the British rapper Plan B. ‘I’m going to have to be very careful about what to do next’

Taylor Swift Red Release date: October 22 What she says: “From intense love, intense frustration, jealousy, confusion, all of that, in my mind, all those emotions are red. There’s nothing beige about any of those feelings.” What we say: Swift promises a warts-and-all outlook with her fourth album. We wonder if any of these songs contain another kissoff to John Mayer.

50 Cent Street King Immortal

For the record

Robbie Williams Take the Crown Release date: November 5 What he says: Announcing the album on his website, Williams says his “main priority was to write what I consider, and hopefully what the world would consider, to be hits. I’m very excited.” What we say: Williams hopes this album will be his big comeback after his 2009 lacklustre effort Reality Killed the Video Star. His recent Take That reunion is already paying off, with his fellow member Gary Barlow producing this album’s summery lead single Candy.

Release date: tomorrow

50 Cent

Alicia Keys

What they say: “He’s taking it back to the old 50,” Hitboy, 50 Cent’s producer, told MTV. “And he had some new records that were some different-sounding stuff, too. I’m excited to see how people react to it.” What we say: 50 Cent experienced a flop record in 2009. With the hip-hop game generally moving so fast, it will be interesting to see if fans will still be interested in what Fiddy has to say.

It may have been billed as a solo Eminem show, but hip-hop heads took further pleasure in seeing the superstar rapper joined on stage by Royce Da 5’9”. Eminem credits his fellow rhymer as an influence and they presently work together as a duo under the Bad Meets Evil moniker. 5’9” continued to party after Sunday’s performance with an extra set at Étoiles at Emirates Palace alongside Eminem’s tour DJ Alchemist and the hip-hop producer Fredwreck.

Wyclef Jean can’t get enough out of the Abu Dhabi racing season. After headlining last year’s Beats on the Beach at the Corniche, the rapper and failed Haitian presidential candidate returned to the capital to perform as part of Movida Abu Dhabi at the Radisson Blu Hotel on Yas Island.

Now you see him, now you don’t. The young rapper Tyga made a lightning quick visit to Abu Dhabi on Sunday night to perform at Movida Abu Dhabi. According to sources, the rapper behind the hit club-rap track Rack City stayed fewer than 24 hours in Abu Dhabi and returned to the US hours after his performance.

Amber Lounge reaffirmed itself as the best place to party. The weekend saw Kylie and Dannii Minogue, Natasha Bedingfield and Eva Simons make appearances, plus the grand prix winner Kimi Räikkönen and his fellow F1 drivers Jenson Button and Michael Schumacher. Music was care of Taboo of The Black Eyed Peas who got the well-heeled crowd dancing, but his Friday night invitation to the ladies to join him on stage was apparently expected to be extended on Sunday night by one lass. She jumped on stage to bust some moves, only to be coaxed down by security. Nonplussed, she made a beeline for the stage a few more times before Taboo’s platform was taken over by guests.

What they say: the band’s lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong declared the album as “the best music we’ve ever written, and the songs just keep coming”. What we say: This is the first of a trio of albums to be released over the next three months. Judging by the tracks Kill the DJ and Let Yourself Go, the group ditched their rock-opera vibe for a punchier sound.

What she says: “The album represents a new me in every way,” Keys told CNN. What we say: Keys will talk about being a new mother, but the album is not full of sleepy ballads – we think the R&B star is too classy for that.

The former Ace of Base singer, now performing solo, says the song sounded initially upbeat before her sister and fellow Ace of Base bandmate Linn Berggren suggested a change to a darker sound. “The story is about a woman who is always leaving and that is because the woman is not whole in herself,” she says. “I think by changing to minor [chords] people can hear that sadness and relate to that song. “I really believe the most beautiful songs are sad sounding. The album Happy Nation was actually built from the material of All That She Wants – that’s why the album is darker as well. It all fed from each other.”

Ilpo Musto / Rex Features

The singer Marty Cintron, who is performing solo under the No Mercy tag, explains that Where Do You Go was born from the leftover production work from the group’s previous single, a cover of Everything But the Girl’s Missing. “The song was written around the formula of Missing,” he says. “We got a team together, a couple of German authors wrote the lyrics and it was my idea to put Spanish guitars on it.” Cintron, who is based in Miami, says he still gets a thrill when hearing Where Do You Go on the radio. “I was driving in Poland the other day and the song came on, like, three times in the car,” he says. “In Miami people still play the Spanish version of it. It’s amazing.”

Biggest hit song: All That She Wants Album: Happy Nation/The Sign (1992) Chart performance: No 1 in at least 10 territories including the US, the UK, Australia and Germany

The guitarist Richard Drummie says the song was the first written for the group’s Indian Summer album. His enthusiasm for the track initially diminished when the record company asked the duo to contribute it to the film Pretty Woman, starring the up-and-comer Julia Roberts. “I was dead against it. I didn’t know who Julia Roberts was and Richard Gere’s career was kind of over by then and it just sounded like another Valley Girl film to me,” recalls Drummie. “We did meet Julia Roberts eventually and she did say: ‘Hey, you guys have a song in my film.’ And we said: ‘Yes we do,’ and then Keifer Sutherland appeared and whisked her away pretty quickly. I think he thought one of us was trying to take a run at her or something.”

Helmed by the German producers Michael Münzing and Luca Anzilotti, Snap! reached their peak when their hard dance beats were matched with the American rapper Turbo B. Their collaboration resulted in the hits I Got the Power (1990) and Rhythm Is a Dancer (1992). Turbo B quit in 1992 before rejoining the group for another limited spell in 2000.

If there was ever a rapper big enough to fill such a prized slot as the race-day concert, it would have to be Eminem. However, he did have his work cut out for him on Sunday night. For one thing, the mixed crowd was very unlike the audiences at the music festivals he’s used to headlining. Youths, families and petrol heads don’t normally get along when it comes to musical tastes, hence previous race concerts – from Paul McCartney and Prince to Beyoncé – were big enough to bridge the divide. After a long day watching the race, the 20,000-strong crowd needed relief in the form of a few big singalongs. Eminem once again showed his deft command of both the hip-hop and pop worlds with a greatest-hits

arts&life

set full of anthems, but with enough space to display his gritty rap skills. Backed by an eight-piece band and his hype man Mr Porter (also known as the Kon Artist from the rap collective D12), Eminem stepped on to the stage to the urgent riffs of Won’t Back Down before launching into the forceful 3AM. The crowd well and truly warmed up with Square Dance. Backed by its stonking beat, everyone had their hands in the air as Em tore through defiant couplets such as “a pit-bull off his leash/ All this peace talk can cease”. The energy was maintained with the trunk rattlers So Bad and White Trash Party. Eminem acknowledged the crowd constantly, mentioning Abu Dhabi dozens of time on stage. In song, however, he was in his own space.

He marauded across the stage, spitting lyrics while looking down at the floor. Each verse seemed excavated rather than resting on the tip of his tongue. It was left to Mr Porter to make up the on-stage grin shortage. However, a steady supply of levity eventually surfaced with the big anthems I Need a Doctor and Love the Way You Lie. Hip-hop heads received a real treat when his fellow Detroit native Royce Da 5’9” joined Eminem on stage as the duo Bad Meets Evil. The fiery performance of Fast Lane was utterly brilliant. It was the essence of hip-hop: two dope MCs trading rhyme after rhyme over a bass-heavy beat. Perhaps thanking the audience for this spot of indulgence, Em-

inem quickly followed it up with Stan which, a decade on, remains a high watermark for the genre. A Dr Dre-produced medley of My Name Is and The Real Slim Shady was performed before the set was rounded off with Without Me, Not Afraid and the encore Lose Yourself – the latter cementing itself as the Eye of the Tiger for this generation. The hip-hop party continued late into the night with the Chicago rapper Lupe Fiasco taking to the Skybar stage at the du Forum and Royce Da 5’9” and Eminem’s tour DJ The Alchemist playing their own show at Étoiles at Emirates Place. But t he n ight belonged to Eminem. His performance may have not been to everyone’s taste, yet it thrilled, challenged and remained compelling throughout – increasingly rare qualities to find in to day’s popular music. sasaeed@thenational.ae
