Lebanese star Hiba Tawaji in concert in a breathtaking setting

   Lebanese singer, actress and director Hiba Tawaji will perform on October 29 in a spectacular setting: in Al Ula, Saudi Arabia, in an event that marks the return of musical events in Maraya since the beginning of the pandemic. 

An international star

 

Revealed to the French public during the fourth season of The Voice France in 2015, Hiba Tawaji is already well known in the Arab world.

Equally at home in Arabic, French and English, the singer has a large international fan base. She has already filled many concert halls, including Paris, Beirut or Cairo, and will perform this October 29 in Saudi Arabia, in Al Ula, as part of AlUla Moments, which includes various festivals. 

A concert in an idyllic setting 

 

Hiba Tawaji will perform her music show in one of the most iconic concert halls in the world, which has been listed in the Guinness Records as “the largest mirrored building in the world”: the Maraya Hall. 

 

This open-air venue is located in the heart of the Saudi Arabian desert of Al Ula, in the northwest of Saudi Arabia. Earlier this year, it hosted the 41st Gulf Cooperation Council Summit.

Al Ula is a UNESCO heritage site that impresses with its size and history

 “I always wanted to play in AlUla, a place with such a history and creative heritage,” said the young woman.

She will be accompanied by composer, musician and producer Osama Rahbani, as well as 53 international musicians from around the world.

 

The kick-off of the event season 

 

Saudi Arabia marks the gradual return of live and outdoor events. In addition, more concerts and cultural performances are expected to be announced in the coming months in Al Ula.

 

See you on October 29th for this exceptional concert!
