Emoción is a vibrant and unique multi-national act, comprised of 5 world-class virtuoso musicians. Originally inspired and united by a passion for the sounds and rhythms of Tango Nuevo, this ensemble truly celebrates the universal power of music.  The group’s nationalities reflect the global fusion of their repertoire – a Lebanese singer, Peruvian violinist, Venezuelan cellist, Belgian pianist and German percussionist. Having studied at Europe’s most eminent conservatoires, they played for prestigious European orchestras before meeting in the Qatar Philharmonic.

We enjoyed a really interesting conversation about the potential of the region, thanks to the vast experience and insightful contributions from the panel: Katara Studios’ Mazen Murad, Simsara Music’s Sarah El Miniawy, On The Corner Records’ Pete Buckenham & SACEM’s Habib Achour. The consensus was that, if we truly engage as an international industry & work closely with local partners, the potential for greater collaboration with & exciting growth for this market is great.
