The AAMF 2017 “Acoustic Vibes!” showcases the talents of three singer/guitarists.
With her remarkable and unmistakable voice, Midian Almeida has performed on several TV shows in Brazil. And she has been bringing Brazilian music to the UAE since 2015. Samba, bossa nova, pop and rock are all in her repertoire.
Following concerts held at venues such as the Atlantis and Kempinski hotels in Dubai, and The Westin in Abu Dhabi, Midian is gradually building up a following in the UAE.
Joan McEldowney, from Northern Ireland, has been a resident in Al Ain since 2013. She is a teacher at the Al Aalya School in the Garden City. Joan was Director of the AAMF 2016.
Joan has played live on the BBC and on Sky TV. She has supported artists including Josh Ritter, the Hothouse Flowers, Radiohead and James Blunt.
Her own first solo album, “Storm”, was released in 2000. Recently she has been working on an EP called “Music and Moonlight”.
Singer songwriter Atlanta Frith has performed her original music, a blend of Blues, Jazz, Soul and Folk, in live music venues in Melbourne, Australia, and London, UK. She is now living in Al Ain.
Collaborative projects have seen her work with renowned Jazz and Classical Australian musicians Nick Tsiavos and Peter Neville on two cross-cultural recordings centred round the poetry of activist poet Abidya from Indonesia.
