Intrigued by pearl diving music of the Arabian Gulf, Kuwaiti multimedia artist Zahed Sultan has embarked 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 Sessions’ is Zahed’s new body of work created in collaboration with producers from various cities such as Kingston, Ramallah, Beirut and Bombay as an interpretation of pearl diving music culture.
