Doha: A Tunisian traditional music band enthralled the audience at Katara Drama Theatre on Sunday performing Andalusian classical music at 'Malouf Al Khadraa music night.
The concert was presented by Cultural Village Foundation Katara in coordination with the Tunisian Embassy in Doha. It was attended by Dr Khalid bin Ibrahim Al Sulaiti, General Manager of Katara and Salah Al Salhi, Tunisian Ambassador to Qatar, along with several other dignitaries and diplomats, in addition to a big turnout of the Tunisian community in Doha.
Dr Al Sulaiti said that Katara is always keen on presenting the different cultures from all around the world and this concert opens a window on the rich authentic Tunisian heritage where the classical music is mixed with Andalusian style. 'Katara had organised several Tunisian cultural events which aim to introduce the Tunisian culture to other communities and they always witness large turnout by visitors not only by Tunisians but from other community groups as well, he added.
On his side, the Tunisian envoy said that the musical night took audience from Doha to Tunisia where real heritage is combined with different cultures such as the ancient Andalusian.
