Walking through history

A stretch covering 3.5 kilometres in Muharraq recounts the pearling narrative, from the rich sea beds to the exquisite houses of the wealthy merchants who plied this trade for centuries. People from all ages had a literal walk through history in a special walkathon covering The Pearling Path, Bahrain’s second UNESCO World Heritage Site. Starting from Al-Ghous House (House of Diving) in the south of Muharraq to Seyadi Majlis in its north, the walk featured information on the various landmarks on the route and their role in an industry that left an indelible mark on Bahrain’s culture. Also, Germany’s renowned Arcis Saxophon Quartet perfromed its rare style of chamber music at the Cultural Hall. Comprised of four young musicians hailing from Munich – Claus Hierluksch (soprano saxophone), Ricarda Fuss (alto saxophone), Edoardo Zotti (tenor saxophone) and Jure Knez (baritone saxophone) - the group possessed an infectious charisma and authentic stage presence that is known to always delight audiences.
