Women will take centre stage with Late Nights @ Expo’s all-female headliners at Expo 2020 Dubai’s Jubilee Park on 25 and 26 November. From classical music to comedy, the eclectic programme promises emphatic performances from a range of talented women.
Embarking on her love affair with music at the young age of eight, Serbia-born Aleksandra Krstic has since gone on to perform as a classical, jazz, funk, soul and pop musician across Europe and, more recently, in the UAE. The multi-talented singer, songwriter and piano player, who has written music for MTV Adria and several films, will kickstart Late Nights @ Expo on 25 November with a soulful set.
Bahgaga, an Egyptian comedy band made up of five women, will bring old Egyptian comedy to the Expo site with heritage songs, plus some originals, that tackle everyday issues with tongues firmly in cheeks.
Pakistani folk and Sufi singer Sanam Marvi, who made her live concert singing debut in 2012 with concerts in London, Paris, and New York singing alongside Hadiqa Kiani and Ali Zafar, will entertain with songs in Sindhi, Punjabi and Balochi
Late Nights @ Expo takes place from 2230 GST on 25 November at Jubilee Park. Entry is free for Expo 2020 ticket holders, but visitors are advised to arrive early.
Maradona football tournament and Wasim Akram cricket coaching lead busy week at Expo’s Sports Hub
Two legends from opposite sides of the globe decorate the line-up at Expo 2020 Dubai’s Sports, Fitness and Wellbeing Hub in the next week, as Argentinian football superstar Diego Maradona is honoured and visitors are given the chance to bowl an over or two with Pakistani cricket wizard Wasim Akram.
On 25 November, the Argentina Pavilion will mark the first anniversary of Maradona’s death by organising a football tournament for young players. Born in Lanús, Argentina, in 1960, Maradona is universally regarded as one of the greatest players of all-time. He captained his country to World Cup triumph in 1986 and, after hanging up his boots, called the UAE home during a colourful management career.
