Pakistani artists to light up Washington DC | The Express Tribune

In a spectacular celebration of culture and diversity, Pakistan is set to take the stage at the prestigious World Cultural Festival 2023, scheduled to be held at The National Mall in Washington, DC with over half a million attendees expected, including world leaders. This event under the theme “One World Family” promises to transcend borders and offer a unique opportunity to showcase Pakistan’s rich and diverse cultural heritage.

Led by choreographer Wahab Shah, and a team of exceptionally talented performers, Pakistan’s performance at the World Cultural Festival is poised to be a proud celebration of the nation’s folk culture. What makes this performance even more captivating is the mesmerizing Sufi and Folk-inspired musical track, expertly produced by distinguished music producer Ali Mustafa. This composition is beautifully complemented by profound Sufi poetry and signature costume designs by Yousuf Bashir Qureshi (YBQ).

The World Cultural Festival is not just another cultural event; it goes beyond the traditional boundaries of a typical concert or a display of diversity. It symbolises a milestone in the global movement towards harmony, exemplifying the possibilities that emerge when the world unites as one family. The festival serves as an open invitation for all to actively participate in building a world that truly embodies the concept of a global family. In the past, the World Cultural Festival has received widespread acclaim for its ability to bring people together, breaking down barriers and fostering a sense of understanding, harmony, and interconnectedness among all individuals.

This isn’t the first time Pakistan has taken part in the festival. In the third edition of the event held in New Delhi, India, in 2016, Pakistan’s performance left a lasting impression and received enthusiastic applause. Now, the nation is gearing up to make history once again. To support Pakistan’s representation at the World Cultural Festival 2023, there are opportunities for individuals to participate actively. Those interested can register to join the stage performance with Wahab and his team, engaging in the traditional Dhamaal dance.

The World Cultural Festival is a global celebration of culture and diversity, emphasizing the significance of unity within our global family. It provides a unique platform for nations to come together, share their cultural heritage, and nurture a sense of understanding, harmony, and interconnectedness among all people.
