The Qatar Philharmonic opens the 2023/24 season with a unique musical event that aims to enhance and preserve Gulf folk music by intertwining traditional Gulf folk styles with a Western orchestra. The music will emphasise Qatar’s rich maritime history with influences from the art of ‘Fijiri’, a traditional form of music associated with pearl divers and the sea. The Philharmonic’s Deputy Executive Director, Nasser Sahim composed the music for the event, with Dr. Amer Jaffar. The orchestra will be led by distinguished Uzbek conductor Kamoliddin Urinbaev.
