Multicultural musical ensemble Firqat Alnoor (meaning ‘orchestra of light’) delighted Expo 2020 Dubai visitors on Tuesday evening.

The Israel-based orchestra comprises Israeli Arabs and Jews, sharing their musical heritage from all over the Middle East, as well as Morocco, Iraq and Egypt.

The co-founder and conductor, Ariel Cohen, proved that he has many strings to his bow as he conducted the group at the Dubai Millennium Amphitheatre while playing percussion, and at times signing, in both Hebrew and Arabic.

In a trilingual address (Arabic, English and Hebrew), the orchestra also thanked the leaders of the UAE for making the event possible.
