I didn’t expect this week to evolve into somewhat of a Parade of Middle Eastern pop stars, but sometimes you just have to play with the cards you’re dealt.
Pop parades don’t happen too often on Piran Café — you’re more likely to come across a post with photos from a South American presidential election inauguration parade — so why not?
This is Fahad Al Kubaisi, a popular Qatari pop singer who performed after last night’s World Handball Championship matches at Dusail Arena in Doha. The 33-year-old, who is well established in the region, has several records and a music soundtrack to his credit.
The music? Not my particular cup of green tea, but the crowd liked him. I much preferred the traditional style of Iraqi singer Kadim Al Sahir a few nights ago.
Four more images below. Enjoy!
