      concert by cosmo

      Cosmo, electronic music producer and composer Esam Hammad, is a studio enthusiast with an ear for guitar virtuosity and electronic texture alike, his indie-leaning dance music placing him in the recent tradition of artists like Caribou and Mount Kimbie. The Bahrain native’s gently propulsive, stirringly nostalgic sound was developed from years of independent study and musical exploration. Live, he goes for what he refers to as an architectural approach, programmed beats and melodies shaped to flow with sci-fi visuals and the energy of the room. SHUA’A (Arabic for light beam) is his latest live concept. An audio-visual journey, blanketing the past with the future. “The journey starts in Bahrain, with a show designed for the La Fontaine Moon Court”.

              BREATH OF POETRY

              art exhibition by Simeen Farhat

              Like birds, my sculptures, too, move in space or perch somewhere. Eloquent words in many languages, by Eastern and Western poets, writers and philosophers, or my own written inspirations.
              My beloved late father, who was quite well versed in Urdu, Farsi and English, and with a fanatic love for Ghalib’s poetry, played a tremendous role in the shaping of my current body of work. Awaiting his migration to the next world during the final years of his life, he would often communicate with his family and friends using verses of poetry from various poets about philosophical questions.

              Simeen and La Fontaine will be donating 20% of the art sales towards the Think Foundation |
