It's true, Tunisian pioneering singer Saber Rebai will close the 15th annual Mawazine Festival on May 28, while Lebanese singer Diana Haddad is set to open the eight-day event in Rabat.
The Voice Arabia judge will entertain the festivalgoers with one of his classic performances at the Nahda Stage, according to the event’s organizer Maroc Cultures Association.
“This author, composer, performer, has indeed left an indelible imprint on the history of the festival since his passage on the Nahda stage in 2011,” the association said in a press release, noting that this “music genius performed on the most prestigious stages in the world, since the release of his mythical version of Sidi Mansour in 2000.”
Saber was described as a "promising avant-gardism artist" when he took his first steps into the music world in 1985.
“My music is not alien, nor archaic, nor futurist, but it contains a hint from the past. It is the ancient mixed with the modern,” says Saber, who has 13 successful albums to his name.
As per previous years' format, the festival will include performances by both international and regional artists. Lebanese superstar Assi Helani, Iraqi superstar Kadim Al Saher and American diva Christina Aguilera have so far been confirmed as headliners for this year's festival.
