Lina Bakir’s Fusion Dream: Unforgettable: A fusion of orchestra, singers and outstanding Kuwaiti pianists
She’ll be known to many of you as the musical impresario behind the decade-long series of ‘Une Nuit de Rêves’ concerts and, this time, Lina Bakir is back with something on an altogether larger scale – a night at the Sheikh Jaber Al Ahmad Cultural Centre on Saturday 4 May from 7pm.
Lina’s ‘Fusion Dream: Unforgettable’ picks up where ‘Une Nuit de Rêves’ left off… and takes things to another level. Where those earlier dinner / concerts provided memorable evenings on an intimate scale, ‘Unforgettable’ takes to Kuwait’s most significant stage and offers the nation a dazzling musical journey around the world.
For one night only, be inspired by performances from outstanding pianists as well as the talented vocalists and the superb orchestra accompanying them.
Delving into the heart of the Arab world with songs from Fairouz and Asmahan, you’ll travel through popular culture with Lady Gaga’s ‘A Star Is Born’ and Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’… amongst other well-known tunes.
You’ll get your toes tapping to the rhythmic beats of Latin tempo, and Bocelli’s inspiring songs including ‘Bésame Mucho’.
Other geniuses are not overlooked – listen out for classics such as Chopin’s ‘Nocturne’ in C-sharp minor and ‘Casardas’.
At the heart of Kuwait’s musical maturation – Lina has taught two generations of the nation’s young musicians – she is a passionate supporter of the advancement of live performances and an advocate for the importance of the creation of a musically eloquent society.
The evening is supported by ABK, DHL and Bayan Dental Clinic.
Do not miss it!
