TAKKAT – A MUSICAL EVENING FOR A CAUSE
An evening to socialize together and mobilize benevolent contributions in support of the recent Earthquake Victims.
In times of crisis, it's crucial to show solidarity and support for those who are affected and in need. Joining hands with the community organization(s) working to raise awareness, contribution, and relief efforts to support the victims of the recent Earthquake in Turkey and Syria, DALMA MALL steps forward to host a ‘CONCERT FOR A CAUSE’ by the popular Syrian band ‘TAKKAT, on 4th of March 2023.
TAKKAT is a talented group of young musicians from Syria whose common interest in traditional folk songs and a quest to revive the musical folklore heritage of the Arab world, in general, and Syria in particular, brought them together to re-present old traditional songs in their own unique musical way, with all due love, respect, and appreciation to the original owners of those songs.
With a great multitude of fan-following within a year after the band's release, their total views clocked about 350M viewers on YouTube, 1.2M Followers on Facebook, and 250k on Instagram making them popular and growing continually. In Jan 2020, Dalma Mall invited them over to UAE for the first time, wherein their spectacular musical debut at the mall not only attracted and entertained many thousands but also fashioned a meaningful experience and lasting impression. The band later also performed in March 2021 in Dubai, for the EXPO 2020 audience, capturing the hearts of millions and gaining more fans from across the region through their captivating and enchanting live performances.
Takkat concerts have spanned most Syrian provinces and cities exceeding a total of 200 concerts, wherein a significant chunk of those was hosted for the public as well as for charity purposes, serving initiatives of international organizations such as SOS CHILDREN’s VILLAGES and Cancer Care. Takkat also runs concerts to promote the process of education wherein the band was highly acclaimed and honored across Syria.
When Dalma Mall approached TAKKAT to host a concert for a cause, in support of the ongoing UAE charity initiative to mobilize resources and supplies, to the affected regions in Syria & Turkey, the band graciously agreed to donate their time and talents for the same. Mr. Bhupinder Singh, General Manager & CFO said “Through this Live Performance, this 4th March 2023, 7 pm, we at Dalma Mall wish to bring the community together for a noteworthy and meaningful cause, that will help maximize the relief efforts of the UAE”.
“The event will be non-ticketed with free admission to all. We only solicit your kindness to contribute out of your heart any supplies that may help the needy in the affected regions”.
