Exchange of cultures
The organizers of the “Malmö International Festival for Oud and Arabic Song” seek to integrate, communicate and exchange cultures and experiences with the whole world whether represented by individuals, institutions, or creative gatherings. This festival aims for the exchange of experiences, as well as the spreading of culture, techniques and aesthetics of Arab music and singing globally.
The festival believes that the convergence of different cultures in the world is a basic pillar for innovation and development. Therefore, everything is positive and new is searched for, giving special priority to rare and unfamiliar musical cultures and shedding light on them because of the cultural richness they carry that adds to Arab and international music, and defines the world with our music, values and songs.
