MUSCAT: Fareed Ayaz Qawwal, the lead vocalist of a classical band, participated in a concert the other day at Bait Al-Zubair’s Music Festival in Oman.
The event was hosted by Al-Zubair, Founder of the Zubair Corporation. The Ambassador of Pakistan to Oman Ali Javed also attended the event.
Before the concert even started, huge crowds had gathered in anticipation of a memorable night.
Speaking to the Times of Oman, Ahmed from Lahore said: “I am looking forward to hearing some great music. This band is really famous, one of the best. The weather is wonderful and the ambience is good.”
Throughout the performance, the audience joined in, creating an exceptional environment that would not have been out of place in a Mughal court.
