The Festival party for the 9th edition of the Berlin Arabic Film Festival took place in the basement of Al-Hamra in Prenzlauer Berg. The party opened with a set from Siin (comprised of Rafi from Palestine und Uros from Serbia), playing a fusion of traditional Arabic music combined with the techno music that Berlin is famous for. After the party was in full swing, they picked up their instruments and played a set of live music in a similar style. This was the first time they gave a live performance and it was well recieved by the crowd.

For the second act DJ Hilwi took over the decks. She played a wide variety of music from the middle-east, north Africa and south Asia. She kept the energy going and the crowd dancing late into the night.
