Get ready for an Afrocentric Ramadan Closing Party with the incredible Queen of soulful South African House Music – Monique Bingham. The celebrated artist is bringing an evening of floor-flooding hits to the high rooftop of Pure Sky Lounge and Dining.
With an unwavering commitment to bringing quality Afro House music to the UAE, Afrocentric provides a solid line-up of international and local DJs and performers to its monthly club night. The Afrocentric movement has grown from strength to strength with events taking place in London, Los Angeles, Amsterdam and Kenya as well as monthly gigs in both Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
Monique Bingham has been responsible for some of the most poignant, soulful jazz-infused house music of the past 20 years. Her 2012 collaboration “Take Me To My Love“with Ralf Gum became a runaway crossover hit in the country. She was the first ever non-South African artist to perform live at the 12th annual Metro FM awards in 2013 for a television audience of over 10 million viewers. And her collaboration with one of the world’s greatest living jazz legends and human rights activist Hugh Masekela entitled “With her Hand” has made her a fixture on festival stages throughout Southern Africa ever since.
With Grammy award winner Louie Vega, and South African house king and 2016 BET award winner Black Coffee, Monique released an album: “Best of the Last/Anthology: 1995-2015” that marked 2 decade milestone in the recording industry and featured 26 classic as well as new house tracks. Their collaboration “Deep in the Bottom (of Africa)” has cemented her standing as part of the Mzansi music revolution.
Travel through the glorious, beat-bopping history of Afrocentric house with the Brooklyn-born singer alongside DJs GB and Cory Centric. You’re in for a night of non-stop dancing and swift rhythms with this dream line-up to kick off May and the month of Ramadan.
