On the third day of the program the students were asked to dress up In traditional Kuwaiti garmets and to meet in Dar al Athaar Al Islamiyah.
Not knowing what to expect they were to attend a rare and special session in presence of guest performance by the one and only local band Al Maas.
The session was condensed with enriching historical facts about our traditions, music and cultural norms. Bridging the gap between our ancestors past and the youth of today.
The session also touched on the science behind music and its use can be found in almost all aspects in our lives, from medicine to it being a cultural deity and identity to a universal language and a form of personal expression.
In a tribute to Kuwaiti art and heritage and with the guidance of Mentor Abdulaziz Al Adwani and AlMass band the students learnt and got a chance to see a live performance of three different kinds of music. Samiri, Laihwa, and Al Hadadi. They also traced its historical use when our ancient fathers used it on their long voyages in the sea.
For example,Hadidi music is used in the hymns of our ancestors, the sailors on their long, hard, and strenuous voyages in the sea. It motivated the men hard working hard under the bask of the sun and salt of the sea.
The session continued with special performances from Mentor Abdulaziz Al Adwani, and a very heartwarming show by Third generation graduate Maryam shehab where she alongside Protégé Abdullah Al Nimash performed an original song written by Maryam as a thank you extraordinary experience she had from the program
The ultimate finale to a great day.
