Bushido treat for F1 visitors.

BUSHIDO will host a one-of-a-kind after-party to welcome international visitors to Bahrain's F1 race. The event is being organised in collaboration with Fashion TV and will be held on April 22.

It will feature international DJ and producer Poet Name Life from award-winning group The Black Eyed Peas, live vocalist Simonne Cooper, two top models from the Elite Agency of Prague, dancers from Paris and two live musicians.

Poet Name Life has just completed The E.N.D. world tour as DJ for the Black Eyed Peas.

His dance-mix compilation album Total Club Hits 4, released by Thrive/Island Def Jam Music Group in early 2010 debuted at number 25 on Billboard's Top 200.

It has also been recognised by Billboard Magazine as the top 10 Electronic/Dance Album of 2010, placing him at number eight.

As well as being a performing DJ, Poet Name Life contributed to the song writing on Light Up The Night, the upcoming single from the latest Black Eyed Peas album The Beginning.

He is currently recording his very own, highly anticipated debut album.

Born in Sydney, Australia, Simonne Cooper started dancing at the age of five and began singing and acting lessons when she was 12.

She then went on to train at the Johnny Young Talent School in Sydney and gained an exclusive place in the select group Young Company, appearing regularly on the successful TV show Young Talent Time.

At college she sang solo at the Sydney Opera House, as well as starring in productions such as West Side Story, Grease, Snow White, The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Romeo and Juliet.

Whilst her background was in stage and theatre, she also started performing in nightclubs, starting out with R&B and soul, before moving into dance music and various styles of house music.

She also currently leads a contemporary jazz/bossa-nova group called Goldstar, performing frequently in many of Ibiza's top live music venues, including Blue Marlin and Villa Mercedes.

Her band in the UAE is called D'Solis and has performed at some of the country's top venues, including the F1 Grand Prix. Ms Cooper is classed as one of house music's best freestyle vocalists worldwide.

French saxophonist JP Sax and percussionist George Safi will also take to the stage during the event.

JP Sax is one of the most talented French saxophonists, who studied classical and jazz music.

He now plays in a large number of clubs and festivals around Europe.

Tickets and table reservations are available from Bushido; for more information call 17583555.
