In the culmination of a week-long workshop and performance project, singer and composer Neo Muyanga will direct local singers in a performance of Naham – Songs of light and weight on Sunday, 18 March 2018 at 7:00 pm in Courtyard C, Al Mureijah Square.

The Arabic word naham in the title refers to a song leader on a pearling ship, whose role is to uplift spirits and provide comfort as the divers trawl the sea in search of pearls. Drawing on the naham’s songs and pearl divers’ stories of toil and struggle, Muyanga’s workshop and performance project provides a platform for hidden voices to express their stories of hope, fear and longing through movement and song.

This performance has been kindly supported by Yamaha and Thomsun
