Asala, Mutref headline ‘romantic family night’

Syrian singer Asala and Kuwaiti singer Mutref Al-Mutref perform at a concert at the international fairground in Mishref.

A musical concert titled ‘A Night in Life 5’ was held at the international fairground in Mishref during the weekend. It was attended by over 3,000 people of different ages and nationalities. The concert – which can be described as a romantic family night – started at 8:00 pm with the young Kuwaiti singer Mutref Al-Mutref.

The audience welcomed him with a huge round of applause, chanting his name. Apart from his new and old songs, he performed one of his father’s popular songs on the oud. He concluded at 9:30 pm, expressing his happiness to be performing at the end of the year.

At 10:15 pm, popular Syrian singer Asala came on stage wearing a long white dress. After singing two songs, she announced the surprise of her new upcoming Khaleeji-style album, some of whose songs are composed by Mutref. She then said that she will present a duo with Mutref, who came on stage and sang two songs with her.

After some time, Asala took her shoes off as she felt uncomfortable. “I won’t be able to continue singing unless I take my shoes off. I apologize for singing barefoot. I hope you all start the new year in comfort. I’m glad I concluded my musical season with this concert in Kuwait,” she noted.
