Saudi Arabia recently organized an outstanding show at the King Fahad cultural center theater where it kicked off with a performance by Saudi pianist Eman Gusti and ended the event with the world’s youngest violinist, Chloe Chua from Singapore.

Al Arabiya English spoke with the self-taught pianist and art enthusiast who spoke of her love for music and what it went to perform at the concert.

“The cultural authority has played a big role in enhancing my hobby. I started playing when I was five under my mother’s training until I was able to control my own path,” the young pianist said.

Gusti is set to also perform at the University of Dar Al-Hikma after the success of her first performance in Riyadh. “I am still a college student majoring in English literature. I would love to prove my worth in the artistic field and hopefully perform worldwide,” she said.
