For this of you who did not catch this yesterday- Yamaha is officially opening “Yamaha Music Square” with a bang this Friday (22nd) at the Grand Avenues at 7:30 pm. See details below.
After having a chat with aDawliah Electronics‘ Executive Manager Maher AbdelKarim and Assistant Manager Ammar Hassoun, we were pleasantly surprised to know that Yamaha’s official launch of Yamaha Music Square in Kuwait is happening this Friday.
Yamaha Music Square - This is going to be an awesome inauguration.
Details of the opening:
Date/Time: Friday Febuary 22 at 7:30 pm
Location: Soku Street at the Grand Avenues (Avenues Mall) – Opposite Harvey Nichols
Guests on display: The amazing Soren Andersen (Guitarist) and Guy Manoukian (Pianist)
I was given a personal tour of the store with Maher and Ammar and it’s got some awesome instruments. Yamaha has outdone themselves with the new Yamaha Music Square that includes grand digital pianos, guitars, microphones, accessories, drum kits and much more. This is a HUGE step for music and musicians in Kuwait because it now makes the store accessible during mall hours.
Come check out the activities on Friday and enjoy the show!
Guests on display:
Soren Andersen is a musician to the bone. Since he was 16, he’s been working as a professional with little formal education.
According to his site: ” I don’t know what I do the most, but I guess it’s a 50/50 mix of being on the road gigging, and creating music in my studio. I enjoy playing to 15,000 people in open air shows as much as I enjoy mic’ing up a drumkit in the recording room.
Speaking of the studio, I’m the lucky co-owner of the Medley Studios in Copenhagen, a 400 square meter recording environment housing 3 control rooms, lots of gear and recording space. You can have a look at it here: www.medleystudios.dk”
Watch Soren perform
Guy Manoukian is an Armenian-Lebanese musician, composer and pianist, born in 1976 in Beirut. This young contemporary Mozart began playing piano at the age of 4, and appeared on television at 6 years. Barely a year later, he was invited to play at the presidential palace to Amine Gemayel. He composed his first piece of music at 8, for which he won a competition and an important gift, a Yamaha piano, a brand he remained faithful to all his life.
He doesn’t forget his Armenian and American teachers who have enriched his early inspiration, and to whom he owes his love for music. Yet this young virtuoso that the Lebanese press describes as “a Star of the East shining throughout the world”, hesitated between basketball and music for a moment. He finally chose his art to which he dedicated himself, and keeps a place in his heart for his title of basketball player in the Lebanese Basketball League.
Make sure you visit Yamaha Music Square this Friday at 7:30 pm at the grans avenues on Soku Street!
