Yesterday March 24, 2015 a private viewing of the ‘Silene’ Cuff by Zaha Hadid in collaboration with AWMouzannar was held at Qirdala, a jewelry shop in Tilal Complex, Shwaikh, Kuwait. The event showcased the cuff along with some of the finest pieces designed by Alia & Dori Mouzannar.

The cuff is made of 12 pieces and is encrusted with 1048 diamonds. The prototype shown is made of brushed white gold but can be ordered in either pink or yellow gold. The price was not disclosed, but what I got to know is that only 12 pieces will be made, 2 have already been sold.

“Silene expresses the fluidity and complexity of natural forms,” said Hadid. “An intricate web gently envelops the pristine white gold cuff resulting in a delicate piece that explores the evolution of organic geometries and patterning.”

Ahmadi Musical Group to Present Verdi Requiem Musical Work | Events in Kuwait

Ahmadi Music Group

It was a huge discovery for me last Spring when I attended the musical orchestra Gloria performed by Ahmadi Musical Group. I had no idea we had this caliber in Kuwait. Their performance was astonishing, I even took my kids along, they really enjoyed it. Next week they have their biggest performance yet and will be including international soloists. The event will take place at The English School in Salmiya, I booked tickets for the whole family, really looking forward to it!

Giuseppe Verdi’s Requiem is a musical illustration of the relationship between God and man. Among the most dramatic musical works ever created, it demonstrates our wish to leave behind our human weaknesses and failings and to become more heavenly in nature.

On November12, 13, & 14 2014, Ahmadi Music Group will assemble its largest-ever choir and orchestra, as well as top-level international soloists, to present Verdi’s monumental work. Please do not miss this chance to see a highpoint of international culture come to life in Kuwait.
