“Rotana has received requests from the Saudi audience to hold concerts with several Arab singers,” Rotana CEO Salem Al-Hindi said during Kora Rotana, a Rotana Khalijia show.
He added: “The list of requested singers includes Wael Kfoury, Assi El-Helani, Najwa Karam, Elissa, Amr Diab, Mohamed Hamaki, Sherine, and Angham.”
Al-Hindi pointed out that the company is trying to meet the audience’s demands by organizing women-only and family concerts.
He also said that famous pop stars reached out to Rotana, including Fares Karam, El-Helani, and Kfoury, offering to perform concerts in Saudi Arabia soon.
The concerts come after Yemeni-Emirati singer Balqees Fathi and Lebanese soprano Heba Tawaji captivated the audience during female-only concerts in Jeddah and Riyadh, respectively, earlier this month.
Al-Kuwaitia, 51, is known as the Queen of Classic Music, Harp of Khaliji Song, the Gulf’s Fairooz and the Sun and Moon of Kuwait. She currently has 16 albums and has collaborated with many composers and poets.
Syrian music artist Nasri, 48, is one of the most popular singers in the Arab world and the daughter of late Syrian artist Mustafa Nasri. Nasri is famous for her strong, melodious voice. Her latest album “Mohtama bel Tafaseel” (Concerned with Details) released earlier this year.
