Power of music at Expo 2020 Dubai
Hot on the heels of Kadim Al Sahir’s triumphant 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 Infinite Nights show 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 dazzling performance will celebrate life on Earth, highlighting the need to treasure and protect the beauty of the natural world.
Nancy Ajram said: “When we all work together and collaborate, we can learn to live in harmony with each other and the world around us. I cannot wait to be part of Expo 2020’s incredible journey – I hope my show will inspire positivity amongst young people around the globe to cherish the world we live in.” Lubna Haroun, Vice President Moment Makers, Expo 2020 said: “We launched our star-studded Infinite Nights series in October and have been amazed by the buzz it has generated around the world. We cannot wait to welcome our next superstars Nancy Ajram and Ragheb Alama to the spectacular Al Wasl Plaza, for what promises to be an unforgettable night of entertainment.”
