COMPOSERS’ PLATFORM 2019

Increasing the appreciation of Arab music across the world

Details

Through its Composers’ Platform, the Abu Dhabi Festival is proud to support gifted Arab practitioners and help increase the appreciation and understanding of Arab music across the world.

Previous artists supported by the Festival Composers’ Platform have included Ihab Darwish (UAE), Naseer Shamma (Iraq), Bechara El Khoury (Lebanon/France), Faisal Al Saari (UAE), Hiba Al Kawas (Lebanon) and Macadi Nahhas (Jordan) among others.

During 2019 we will be supporting Omar Kamal with his new album and reviving the works of Muhyiddin Ba’yun (1868-1934), the great Lebanese buzuq player and singer, in partnership with AMAR Foundation (Arab Music Archiving & Research), Lebanon.
