This December delight in a radiant dialogue between love and peace starring Syrian composer Iyad Rimawi and the talented Sharq Orchestra. Al-Rimawi is accompanied by singers Linda Bitar and Carmen Tukkama Gee, who participated in the singing of many of his musical works.
Rimawi's music has been a special feature in the world of Arabic drama and music in general, placing him among the most important composers in the Arab world today. Rimawi was the first Arab artist to sign with Sony Music International. The album was a great success and reached second place in Virgin Megastore sales, Middle East. The album "Sakun in Syria", which was released in 2016, was the first place in the sales of "Virgin Megastores" Middle East for three consecutive months in an unprecedented situation in the Arab music scene.
Entitled ‘Love Letters from Damascus,’ the Dubai concert will be a heartfelt display of melody, passion and heritage through modern interpretations of classical Arabic music, and pay special homage to the diverse social fabric of Dubai. The concert program will include about 15 pieces and songs from his various musical works that have won the fame of the Arab audience. The Dubai Concert will also feature a number of works that were not previously presented, such as "windows" and “finally”.
Live at Dubai World Trade Centre for one night only, ‘Love Letters from Damascus’ celebrates the indispensable values of coexistence through an emblematic collaboration between Rimawi and a world-class orchestra composed of 40 musicians from 30 countries.
