TRADITIONAL: Kuwaiti music is derived from the country’s seafaring heritage.

PLAZA Antonio Banderas, Puerto Banus, was the scene for an intriguing cultural oddity on Friday July 29 and Sunday July 31, as it hosted the Costa del Sol’s first-ever ‘Festival Kuwait Spain in Marbella,’ a Mediterranean-Middle-eastern mash-up which delighted hundreds of attendees from a diverse range of countries.

The event was free of charge and open to all religions and cultures, with vice-ambassador of the Kuwaiti embassy, Mesheal Abdelmohsen Alsaed, on hand to open proceedings alongside ubiquitous city mayor, Jose Bernal.

Among the many shows, which fused Andalucian and Kuwaiti music and dance, there was also the opportunity for visitors to witness a traditional Kuwaiti wedding ceremony, while those thinking with their stomachs sampled a tempting range of delicacies from both nations.

The event may well be repeated, with all involved more than happy with the level of participation and sales obtained for local businesses.
