To mark the end of the 2014 Abu Dhabi Festival, Michel Fadel made his UAE debut in a traditional evening with an electronic twist. The award-winning musician’s indisputable talent entertained the Emirates Palace Auditorium with a stunning mix of infused traditional and modern Arabic music that included Fairouz favorites and a host of other memorable melodies including Western classics and original compositions, all performed in the inimitable Fadel style; a fitting closing to an exceptional ADF 2014.
H.E. Hoda I. Al Khamis – Kanoo, Founder of the Abu Dhabi Music & Arts Foundation (ADMAF) and the Abu Dhabi Festival, said: “As one of the finest pianists and music arrangers in the region, we are honoured to have had Michel Fadel close this year’s Abu Dhabi Festival. Bringing his incredible talent to a UAE audience was a great achievement for us and I hope that the families who made up the Emirates Palace crowd will be inspired in the future by more Arab musicians who reach Michel Fadel’s heights of musical success.
