Zeb and Haniya Rock Abu Dhabi!
Zeb and Haniya performed at the Manarat Al Saadiyat on the 21st of April, 2011. The singer/songwriter duo collaborated with some wonderful musicians such as Douglas Caskie on percussion, Siddiq Sameer on Rabab and the very talented and renowned composer, Merlijn Twaalfhoven on Viola. For the grand finale Anani Sanouvi surprised both the band and the audience bu joining the musicians on stage and adding his beautiful dance movements to their song ‘Chup.’ They were thrilled that this concert was part of the first event to take place at the venue.
The performance was part of a colloquium hosted by the NYUAD entitled ‘Imagining the Future: New Worlds, New Arts, New Models.’ Curated by Anna Deveare Smith and Gideon Lester the concert brought 20 artists, curators, humanists and writers together from across the globe, to share their experiences in making art through difficult circumstances. Zeb and Haniya were part of this gathering , which also explored new ways of creating and supporting art, institutions and audiences in this fast changing world of ours.
