Al-Mutamid festival

Dancers and musicians took to the stage of the newly-refurbished Loulé Cine Teatro for a performance from Sudanese act Rasha as part of the Al-Mutamid Festival.

The performance was a fusion of Afro-Arabic music combined with oriental dancing with dancer Lubna performing with musicians led by Wafir S Gibril, who created a sound which crossed musical boundaries blending jazz with traditional rhythms during the concert on February 18.

Other acts performing in the festival were the Ibn Misjan Ensemble led by Vincent Molino with music and dance-based on Middle Eastern styles, while Jesus Herrera y Su Cuadro presented a flamenco show Felah-Mengus, which they performed at the Lagoa auditorium on February 19.
