“A night In” at Bayt Lothan was a night to remember

Post Event Reviews feature

Published on February 15th, 2013 | by Caesar (ENGAGE)

When my mates Ayman Ali and Fuad Murad told me that this Bayt Lothan event would be different, I took it with a pinch of salt. My last experience at the BLEND Music Festival 2 was great in terms of the fact that it mustered a healthy association of musicianship with the support of Bayt Lothan, however, the fact that the sound of the musicians’ instruments and vocals were bouncing all over the place didn’t quite allow it to live up to its true potential.

 

As I parked my car in the lot, I walked in expecting a similar experience, but was quite eager nonetheless. Before the event, I had several discussions with Farah Al-Sabah (The GM of Bayt Lothan) about how we need to bring out hidden talent in Kuwait. When I finally had a chance to hear and see some new faces, I was very impressed.

 

Walking straight through, the shadows of the Jelly Shot trio bounced cheerfully around the administrative walls of Bayt Lothan. After saying hello to some good ol’ friends of Kuwait Music (including Hashim, Mubarak, Fuad and Ayman) I finally sank into my bean bag. Household Productions did the sound set-up this time and I loved the fact that Ayman and Fuad kept it extremely simple. Every instrument was hooked up to monitors and recorded on a laptop. With some Ayman magic thrown in, it worked like a charm.

 

 

 

 

The show started with one of the Jasmi brothers (I hope I got the name right.. If I didn’t I apologize!)  playing an original. It was great to see the level of support being recieved. The opening made way for the brothers  to take on “St James Infirmary”  by Dave Van Ronk – a classic! A couple of performances later, the gorgeous-voiced Sama decided to take stage and I absolutely loved her cover of Jewel’s “You were meant for me”.  A female vocalist and guitarist- Who doesn’t love that?

 

 

 

If that wasn’t enough, Carol came on stage and took everyone by storm. Her powerful voice coupled with a dynamic stage presence (Not to mention,  backed by the super talented Jelly Shot) had me bobbing my head like a hula dog on a car dashboard. Carol also performed “I want you”, an upbeat drive-into-the-sunset feel song she wrote herself.

 

Right after her performances, Jelly Shot took it on with a completely bangin’ jam. A fabulous evening with fabulous music. Thanks to Bayt Lothan for their continuous support of local musicians and best wishes go out to all the artists that got on stage to perform.

 

Awaiting the next one !

    Holy cow that looked polished! The girls were stunning and finished the deal with amazing voices and ease on stage, Jellyshot are growing more and more but for me, I find overly lengthy guitar solos annoying and boring. But hey, that’s me, plus, I’m only going by the video : )

    Gratis and Kudos to all involved. Hope everyone is practicing because man, this is going to be big and be great for Kuwait and it’s musicians. -And us punters!!
