Nancy Ajram and Ragheb Alama unite the world through power of music at Expo 2020 Dubai
DUBAI – Hot on the heels of Kadim Al Sahir’s spectacular performance opening Expo 2020’s Infinite Night series, Queen of Arabic pop Nancy Ajram and Arab superstar Ragheb Alama will connect fans around the world when they co-headline the second concert on 12 November.
Ragheb Alama will bring to life music from his 30-year career in a new and innovative performance that will highlight how music connects all humans, from all corners of the world, and encourage people across the globe to connect and engage in collaborative experimentation, in line with Expo’s Mobility subtheme.
Ragheb Alama said: “I want to mix cultures together. I want their audience to hear me, and I want my audience to hear them. I have always liked opening doors, and Expo’s Infinite Night Series is the perfect platform to make this happen.”
Singer, actor and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Nancy Ajram, will perform her biggest hits in a never-before-seen performance under the majestic dome of Al Wasl Plaza. Personifying Expo 2020’s subtheme of Sustainability, her show will convey a message of how human values and attitudes need to change to shape a more resilient future.
Nancy Ajram said: “When we all work together and collaborate, we can build a better society. I cannot wait to be part of Expo 2020’s incredible journey – I hope my show will inspire positivity among young people everywhere, building bridges to connect with one another regardless of culture, background or belief.”
An illustrious line-up of global and regional performers is headlining the six-month Infinite Nights Series, beginning with the ‘Caesar of Arabia’, Kadim Al Sahir, on 15 October. Immersing fans far and wide, both physically and virtually, shows will be streamed live from the spectacular Al Wasl Plaza, the pulsating heart of Expo 2020 and home to the world’s largest 360-degree projection surface.
The health, safety and wellbeing of all visitors is Expo’s first responsibility. In line with capacity limits and social-distancing regulations, access to Al Wasl Plaza is for invited guests only, but Expo ticket holders will be able to soak up the electric atmosphere and watch the show on outdoor big screens at Expo’s Dubai Millennium Amphitheatre and Jubilee Park. The concert will also be streamed on www.expo2020dubai.com and across multiple channels, as well as Expo TV on YouTube.
Expo 2020 is bringing the world together until 31 March 2022 for a once-in-a-lifetime event where music is acting as both a moving and a connective force.
