Taj Sheba presents “Nakaira” live in concert [Archives:2004/744/Local News]

June 7 2004

“Onde sonore dal mediterraneo” is the title of Nakaira's new CD and it is also name of a Mediterranean wind. It enabled the first people who discovered it to trace new routes in the Mediterranean Sea and to enhance the spread of cultures and populations. This is the spirit that drove the band in the recording of its second CD of original and traditional music. It is a trip from Greece to Sephardic Spain, and to the outskirts of the Middle East, passing through Sicily, Nakaira's native land. The album rides on the wings of a song in Sicilian dialect, whose text was written especially for the album by Sicilian singer-songwriter Carlo Muratori, based on an original Nakaira theme.
The Taj Sheba Hotel is organising live concerts of the band as part of its “Italiano Fiesta” at the hotel on the 6th, 7th and 10th of June by the poolside. In addition, the hotel is flying down an Italian specialist Chef from The Taj Palace Hotel, Dubai who will pamper your palette's and take you through the cuisines of Italy.
The promotion has been organised in conjunction with the Italian Embassy in Sana'a, Yemenia and the Taj Palace Hotel, Dubai. According to the Sales & Marketing Manager of The Taj Sheba Hotel, Mr. Arif Khan, “this is the beginning of a series of such promotions that the hotel has planned in the year to come to give the people of Sana'a the best of the world”.
