The group, which consists of 24 women, was established five years ago and aims to showcase the country’s culture and heritage.
Their dances are inspired by Qatari folklore, and they intend to showcase their heritage to the world. Which includes the art of Al Khamari, Al Samri, Al Daza and wheat grinding.”
The group performed at Souq Waqif five years ago and since then became an independent group and started to perform in various areas around the country. The group performed during Eid festivals and the FIFA Trophy Tour.
group leader Lulwa Al Muhannadi shares that “Qatar is compact in size, but massive with its actions and abilities. We really loved the opening ceremony! It carried a great message to the whole world. We hope our edition of the tournament brings fans of all nationalities together and unifies them in a country where everyone is welcome,” she said.
Al Muhannadi also said that seeing the different cultural performances from other countries has been amazing. “I love being able to learn about other cultures, especially through the Cultural Activation programme, which has enabled us to experience a multicultural festival and perform at multiple stadiums during the tournament,” she said.
