Exploring Thailand through the show

The 2017 Bahrain Summer Festival wraped up its lineup of top shows on August 5 at the Cultural Hall with a virtuoso performance by Thailand’s world-renowned pianist and composer Nat Yontararak. 

Entitled Homage to the Great Thai Kings, the performance featured several original piano arrangements by Yontararak, which were accompanied by traditional Thai dance numbers performed by The Christian Communications Institute of Payap University. These music and dance pieces highlighted the unique cultural attributes of Thailand’s four main regions, at the center of which is the nation’s centuries-old monarchy.
The event was organized by the Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities (BACA) in collaboration with the Royal Thai Embassy in Bahrain.

Organized by the Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities (BACA) and running until August 7, the popular annual event supports BACA’s “Our Year of Archaeology” year-long campaign aimed at highlighting the island’s unique archaeological assets and bolstering its position as a preferred regional cultural tourism destination.
