Cultural delight

The first edition of Dubai Culture & Arts Authority’s (Dubai Culture) Hatta Cultural Nights was a huge success, attracting over 37,000 visitors and recording a 50 per cent increase in the average number of visitors in normal days over the first week.

The event, coming in line with the launch of the 25th edition of Dubai Shopping Festival and taking place in Wadi Hatta Park, witnessed an overwhelmingly positive response. Visitors enjoyed cultural, artistic, heritage, and entertainment activities, which included nightly live musical performances, a library, a souk, an exhibition of artistically painted doors, and workshop for children at Dubai Public Libraries. More than 40 youth volunteers from Hatta contributed to welcoming visitors and introducing them to the cultural and heritage activities.

The events and activities under Hatta Cultural Nights introduced visitors to the cultural fabric of Dubai, with a particular focus on Emirati handicrafts and folklore as well as interactive workshops.

Exhilirating show

Popular singer Mahmoud Al Turki put on a memorable show in Dubai as he cajoled crowds into a chorus of his famous hits as part of Global Village’s weekly concert series on January 3.

Al Turki filled the open-air atmosphere of the world’s leading multicultural festival park with song after song, including ‘Domny Domny’ and ‘Twkaa Ala Aljarh’, much to the enjoyment of thousands of Global Village guests.

Global Village hosts live concerts every Friday at 9pm featuring international stars from the Middle East, Asia, and the world. The weekly live concert series builds on Global Village’s commitment towards delivering guests exceptional and unforgettable experiences.
