Greetings globetrotters. Happy Holidays! I hope everyone has been well. I’ve been seeing a cold front has hit most of the United States during this holiday season. I hope everyone is bundling up, staying safe, and enjoying time with family and friends.
A couple weeks ago I attended the 10th annual SOLE DXB hip hop festival in Dubai. I hadn’t attended in several years due to the pandemic. It was great to return to one of my beloved festival experiences that Dubai has to offer. The last time I attended back in 2018 and 2019, I had the pleasure of meeting the likes of my faves Nas and Black Star.
Well the 2022 festival also did not disappoint. This year I managed to chop it up quickly with the talented Ari Lennox after her set. I also was able to attend a song-writing session by Grammy nominated artist Mumu Fresh. I totally enjoyed hearing both of these soulful ladies performing and interacting with audiences in their elements.
The fashion, food, and just good atmosphere is always a vibe at SOLE DXB. This year was no different. I also managed to check out a listening session by Narcy and stopped by for a free breast screening at the Pink Caravan located on site provided by the team at Ketish, an empowering site for women. I ended out my time there by checking out a dope performance by one of my favorite woman MCs in the game Rapsody. Overall, I’m glad I was able to experience SOLE DXB this year. What are some of your favorite festival and concert experiences globetrotters? As always, stay safe and happy globetrotting.
Nice shots of you from Dubai. I’d love to visit that place someday when I have the chance.
thank you! I hope you’re able to visit someday.
