The artistic manager of the spectacle, Saifallah Ben Abderrazek, said at the beginning of the press conference that “From Carthage to Seville” is a Maghreb show with a Mediterranean perspective and that it will present the various types of Malouf with exclusive performances that the audience will discover for the first time. He added that the show will start with a musical intro gathering all the Malouf types then a variety of songs will be performed by the artists.
For his part, Maestro Mohamed Lassoued said: “I want to thank the direction of the International Festival of Carthage for giving us the honor of opening the 54th session of the Festival which represents a kind of recognition for the great work presented by the National Troop for Music in the show of “Ers Ettbouaa” which represents a proof that the Tunisian music and mainly Malouf both have their distinguished audience and with the show of “From Carthage to Seville” we will create a new opportunity to better present our Tunisian music and to highlight at the same time the “Maghreb musical common heritage”.
The Moroccan singer Abir Abed said that the show represents a Magherb and Mediterranean musical meeting. She added:” During the show every singer will present samples of the heritage of Malouf of his country. We hope that the show will fit the audience’s expectations.”
