Sharjah World Music FestivalFurat Qaddouri Music Centre for the fifth edition of the Sharjah World Music Festival or SWMF, organizes a singing competition. It’s arranged by Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq) in collaboration with Sharjah Commerce and Tourism Development Authority (SCTDA), Al Majaz Amphitheatre.

This seven-day competition will commence from Jan 13th and will continue till Jan 18th. It will be opened to people of different age groups, and will take place in Block C, Al Qasba, from 6.30pm to 7.30pm.

Mr. Furat Qaddouri, director of SWMF, in an exclusive interview with The Gulf Today said, “The festival is keen on educating the modern generation about good music and singing meaningful songs like the ones sung in the sixties and seventies.”

“The singing competition has been organised so that the currently hidden talents of different ages and nationalities get an opportunity to showcase their flairs. Further, it will also encourage the stage-fearing groups to take part,” he added.

Qaddouri said, “The first three winners will be given valuable gifts.”

To quote Qaddouri, “Every concert is unique in its own way. However, the international Spanish musician, Vicente Amigo, playing Andalusian ancient music has a high chance of stealing the show. It is on Jan.13 in Flag Island.” He highlighted the Furat Qaddouri Music Centre’s interest to improve and explain it to the modern generation by offering quality music. Therefore, there is going to be an exclusive evening in the Memory of Al Andalib Al Asmar, Abdel Halim Hafez, the late famous Egyptian singer.
