Intrigued by pearl diving music of the Arabian Gulf, Zahed Sultan embarks on a journey to explore its roots and discover musical bridges between past traditions and present trends through a project entitled ‘Hiwar.’
Arabic for dialogue, ‘Hiwar’ is a 14 -16 piece audio-visual-dance performance which takes heritage pearl diving music from the Arabian Gulf and re-imagines it into a live, present day context. Hiwar is a large format presentation which features traditional percussive instruments alongside contemporary arrangements with piano, cello, visuals and interpretive dance.
