Join us for the MENA premiere screening of the short film FREE SPIRIT by the multi-platinum award winning, global superstar Khalid, followed by a listening party of key tracks from his highly anticipated sophomore album “Free Spirit” which was just released!
Conceived and created by Khalid and Emil Nava, the short film is an authentic, visual and parallel fabrication of the album as it expands on the lyrical content and narrative reflected from Khalid’s life growing up – in all its beauty and pain.
FREE SPIRIT serves as a companion piece to Khalid’s musical creations and will feature a never-seen-before commentary + a Q&A with special guests Big Hass, Moh Flow, AY, Shebani and Bailouni.
This event is presented in collaboration with Sony Music Middle East and is a free entry screening.
