We all arrived safely to beautiful Muscat, Oman after some weather delays had many of us miss our flights. This made for an interesting 1st day rehearsal with only a few on the stage. Luckily, we had some extra time the day of the show to get everyone together again. This team is top notch as they pulled together a beautiful concert under the stars right after jumping off the plane from the US.
It was such an honor to have the honourable minister of heritage and culture, His Highness Sayyid Haitham Tariq Al Said of Oman; royal family members, ministers, undersecretaries and other top dignitaries join Yanni for the evening.
Before leaving Oman, Yanni was greeted by the children of the Suffanah bint Hatim Al Taei school in the Yiti village. Black and White together with the local charity, Dar Al Atta'a, organized support to build a school shelter for the kids. These children greeted Yanni and prepared a special song and dance for him to enjoy while wearing their traditional Omani clothing.
We absolutely love Oman. The people here have been extremely warm, welcoming and kind. It always feels like home here and we are looking forward to our return.
