It was a memorable night of traditional Arabic singing and music at the Cultural Hall with legendary Sudanese singer and songwriter Mohammed Al-Amin in the fourth night of the 21st Bahrain International Music Festival (Oct 1st). Audiences listened intently as Al-Amin performed on his longtime companion instrument - the oud – a selection from his prolific catalogue of works that has made him famous since the 1960s, thanks to its patriotic messages and noble ideals that embody the spirit of the common man.
