A Talk with Dr Abdelrab Idris

Show Ended

The Recital Hall hosts, on Thursday 21 September, a talk with the prominent Saudi composer and singer Dr Abdel Rab Idris, the honoree of this edition of the International Music Festival, organised by the National Council for Culture, Arts, and Literature. The talk, conducted by Musaed Al-Zamel, the Council’s Assistant Undersecretary, will focus on the significant milestones in the guest’s extensive musical career, which began in the early 1960s in Mukalla, Yemen.

Dr Abdelrab Idris has contributed significantly to both khaleeji and Arabic music. He is renowned for his role in preserving the Khaleeji identity through his compositions and songs. His melodies have been interpreted by celebrated Arab singers, including Talal Maddah, Abu Bakr Salem, Mohammed Abdo, Abdulkarim Abdulqader, Abdullah Al-Ruwaished, Abdulmajid Abdullah, Rashed Al-Majed, Rajaa’ Belmelih, Majida El Roumi, and many others.
