Abu Dhabi culture lovers are causing a creative stir at a monthly open mic night at Shabby Chic café.

Whether you’ve got a way with words, can hold a tune or are pretty flashy with your feet, regular night Echoes puts the spotlight on a diverse range of local talent.

The culturally enriching evening, usually held on the second Friday of every month, will be invading Shabby Chic Café once again this Friday.

Organisers aim to provide a platform for fresh talent and offer a warm and welcoming environment in which their abilities can flourish.

The open mic night primarily focuses on spoken word poetry and music, with dynamic dance thrown in for good measure, too.

An Echoes organiser explained: “We feature local artists every month, allowing us to present the wide variety of talents Abu Dhabi has. Our aim is to create a platform for new artists and build a community to explore talents and broaden creativity.

“During Echoes night, you will see familiar faces in the art scene, as well as new ones sharing their pieces. In Echoes, you will also experience different cultures and perspectives from artists coming from different parts of the world as they share their art on the stage whether its music, dance or poetry. It is indeed an experience you shouldn't miss.”

All are welcome to come along and join in the fun from 6pm until 9.30pm at Shabby Chic Café, in Al Nahyan.

6pm-9.30pm, Fri July 14. Shabby Chic Café, Tower B, Muroor Road, Al Nahyan (02 445 3890).
