I am happy to announce the official launch of a new musical initiative, "AVANT-GARDE MUSIC PROJECTS".

A new way forward, my mission is to organize live music events in Kuwait, to collaborate with the local talents, to initiate recording sessions, and to seek gig opportunities for local musicians.

AVANT-GARDE MUSIC PROJECTS is the accumulation of years of performance by myself and all the musical knowledge I have learned through these years; I hope this initiative sparks a new interest in local music and to get things kicking back into high gear.

That said, I hereby announce my first project under AVANT-GARDE MUSIC PROJECTS:

On March 1, 2012, the BLEND MUSIC FESTIVAL, a mellow acoustic get-together of several local musicians, will take place in Bayt Lothan, the official sponsor, host, and curator of the event.

This event will be FREE OF CHARGE and open to everyone to attend.

The BLEND MUSIC FESTIVAL will be the first of many concerts to be held; there are a handful of musicians on board, and more will be added to the sets at a later stage.

Here is the program for March 1, 2012:

1- Ali Sleeq with Gary Ruston & Kevin Owen = JAZZ
2- Hadi Sarieddine, Bader Nana, & Sarj = ROCK
3- Lewis Chapman - FOLK / ROCK

Sound will be provided by DoubleD Sound & Light Rentals.

More details will be announced soon; in the meantime please free to contact me (see Contact page) for any information.

Hope to see you all there, and here's to a great start to 2012!

Ali Sleeq is the bassist of the Mojolaters Blues Band and the Lounging Criminals, Former Bassist of Evergreen Blues Band (Lebanon), Bluesman, Blogger @ Speakin' the Blues, Jazz Nut.
