We are pleased to invite you to attend Enrico Macias’ musical concert on 12 November 2022 at Dubai Opera.
With his awe-inspiring music and songs that combine classical and current melodies in a unique blend of languages and musical elements. Enrico Macias and his Orchestra will enchant audiences with a soul-stirring rendition of classics.
Since 1962, he has been a creative genius and an icon in the international music business, with a long history and vast song catalog. Enrico Macias was born and reared in Constantine, Algeria, on December 11, 1938, into a musical family. At the age of 14, his musical intelligence was revealed when he got musical training from his future father-in-law.
Enrico became a key figure in French culture across the world as a singer/songwriter. He also sings in a variety of languages, including Italian, Spanish, Turkish, Greek, English, and Armenian.
His singles “J’ai Quitté Mon Pays,” “Les Filles de Mon Pays”, and “Entre l’Orient et l’occident” catapulted him to international stardom in the 1960s. He recorded songs in a variety of languages, including French, Hebrew, and Arabic.
Enrico won the Prix Vincent Scotto in 1965, as well as a Golden Disc Award in 1976 for his song “Mélisa.” It’s also worth noting that UN Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim dubbed Enrico “The Singer of Peace” in 1980 after he donated the proceeds from his single “Malheur à celui qui blesse un enfant” to UNICEF. He was also given the title of “Roving Ambassador for Peace and the Defense of Children” in 1997.
Last year Enrico Macias met his fans in Dubai at “Dubai opera” on January 21&22, 2021, after more than 4 years of his last sold-out concert in Dubai 2016.
Macias expressed his joy and enthusiasm to meet his fans in Dubai again at the Dubai Opera on 12 November 2022 and perform his soul-stirring melodies Adieu Mon pays, Les filles de mi pays, L’Orient, Entre l’Orient et l’occident, and others are well-known.
