Syrian singing star Assala Nasri heads to Riyadh for women-only Eid concert


Chart-topping Syrian singing sensation Assala Nasri will deliver her first Saudi performance at a women-only concert in the capital on June 20 to mark Eid Al-Fitr.

Nasri is known for her live performances and the show is expected to draw a large Arabic-speaking audience to Riyadh’s King Fahd Cultural Center (KFCC).



The singer and TV host has promoted the show with a Twitter post captioned: “In Riyadh, my soul is always renewed and my family is there.

There I started, and there my voice becomes a child again that throws himself in the arms of hearts that I am connected to.

“Assala’s fans are waiting for the day when she will entertain them with her mesmerizing voice,” said Musaed Al-Mikhlafi, KFCC technical manager, on Saturday.

“KFCC has world-class sound, light and technical logistics to organize such concerts in cooperation with the General Entertainment Authority (GEA) and other relevant government agencies.”

Adilah Al-Askar, a student at King Saud University, said:

“I am happy to be attending the concert because Assala is my favorite Arab singer.”

The singer also hosts a TV program, “Soula,” on Al Hayat TV and Dubai TV that presents guest artists and musicians.

Nasri won last year’s “Best Arab Singer Award” for her latest album, “Mohtama bel Tafaseel” (“Concerned with Details“) released in 2017, which topped the charts.

Since the beginning of the Syrian civil war in 2011, Nasri, who is a Syrian but also holds Bahraini nationality, has supported the Syrian rebels and strongly opposed Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Jeddah will also host a women-only concert featuring renowned Egyptian singer Sherine Abdel Wahab for the first time at King Abdullah Sports City on June 19, Al-Mikhlafi said.



Other Eid programs organized by the governorates of different provinces will include fireworks, stunt shows and opera.
