Greek pianist, composer and music producer Yanni performed for the second year in a row at the Maraya Concert Hall in al-Ula on Friday as part of the Winter at Tantora festival.

The two-hour concert was broadcast live online and other mediums across the Kingdom by the Saudi Radio Broadcasting network.

“I’m very happy to be in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia,” Yanni told the audience in al-Ula in Arabic to much applause after performing several of his popular compositions.

“It’s pretty amazing, we feel at home here. Very warm, very welcomed ever since we got off the airplane,” he added.

Yanni was performing at the newly completed Maraya Concert Hall where the Greek Maestro said is where “imagination, creativity, hope for the future and faith all come together.”

During last year’s performance, Yanni dedicated his performance of “One Man’s Dream” to his Saudi Arabian audience for his belief that they can “achieve their dreams.”

The Winter at Tantora festival started on December 19, 2019, and will run until March 7, in Saudi Arabia’s al-Ula city.
