The much awaited Dubai Sufi Weekend presented by Du Live in association with HTC has kick started with the arrival of all three musical prodigies in the UAE. The performing artists made an appearance and addressed the media, unraveling insights on their upcoming performances yesterday at a press conference event held at the Sheraton Grand Hotel.
Legendary musician and composer, AR Rahman will be seen performing alongside his Sufi choir for the very first time, bringing his music excellence to Dubai on the 18th of December, followed by equally captivating performances on the 19th of December by the voice behind some of the most popular Hindi film songs & Ghazals, Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Bollywood playback singer Sunidhi Chauhan.
AR RAHMAN QUOTE “The philosophy and teachings of Sufis has influenced my music and made me look at my inner self in more depth. Songs like Khwaja Mere Khwaja, Maula and Kun Faaya Kun have found a deep connect with so many of you. This connect and the love of people has enabled me to embark on a new journey, moving away from my routine of romantic and dance-oriented compositions, and perform for Dubai, the Sufi songs I have composed for films and a few covers of the masters of Qawwali. I’m looking forward to my first Sufi concert in Dubai. “
RAHAT FATEH ALI KHAN QUOTE “Sunidhi and I are coming together on stage for the very first time, it will be a very unique experience not just for us but for the Dubai audience and we aresure to set the stage on fire “
SUNIDHI CHAUHAN QUOTE “I am excited to be part of what promises to be a truly unique experience. I can’t wait to meet my fans in Dubai and sing for them my beautiful love songs, and this time, unplugged, whilst also sharing the stage with Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan – something I have never done before.”
