A Celebration of Khalil Gibran
Montegrappa organised an amazing evening Sunday 19th at the Dubai International Writer’s Centre in historic Shindagha. It is a Celebration of the great Gibran Khalil Gibran, a literary hero.
The event will be attended by the president of the Gibran National Committee of Lebanon, Dr Chidiac, speaking about Gibran’s legacy, famous Lebanese TV presenter George Kordahi reading some of Gibran’s poetry, the amazing actor and script writer Nadim Sawalha talking aboutGibran, The Play – ‘Rest Upon The Wind’ that is touring the UAE this week, and is produced by Ali Matar. Mohammed Harib, creator of Freij, will also be there talking about (and showing some previews of) the much anticipated animated movie, ‘The Prophet’ which is coming out next month and which the Nasr brothers helped to produce with Salma Hayek.
Christine Belbelian from The Emirates Opera Project will sing ‘Aatini Al Ney wa Ghani’ a traditional Arabic song popularised by Fairuz, but based on words from Gibran’s poetry accompanied by Kamal Musallam on the oud.
To top it all off, Katia Traboulsi who designed the Montegrappa Khalil Gibran pen collection will be unveiling her latest masterpiece, the Limited Edition ‘The Prophet’ pen.
It’s very exciting and we hope you’ll all come and be with us for this very special occasion.
