The 2023 edition of Umsiyat will be a special edition, as it will try to reflect the spirit of Abu Dhabi as a UNESCO Creative City of Music. Over the past few years, the Umsiyat concert series has become an institution in Abu Dhabi, presenting leading artists and groups such as Trio Joubran, Lotfi Bouchnak and many more. It offers a high-level cross-cultural musical programme delivering a message of peace and tolerance.
For 2023, the programme will include concerts at different locations in Abu Dhabi (the Cultural Foundation Auditorium and Amphitheatre), giving the public an insight into the different religions that constitute the diverse city of Abu Dhabi. The concerts will feature Sufi music, Christian and Buddhist music and be open to everyone interested. Their aim is to establish a true understanding between cultures and to introduce audiences to the different expressions of faith through music.
For the third evening of the series, Preacher, Entrepreneur and Musician Dr. Oscar Williams will be performing with his group a true Gospel Programme promoting not only his faith but its expression through American music values and culture.
