Our time in Tunisia was unforgettable. It was the first time Yanni performed in Africa. The reception and heartfelt welcome from his fans has left a lasting impression.
The International Affiliate in Tunisia (http://www.yanni.tn) welcomed Yanni into their country as he left the airport – a truly emotional moment for us all.
Yanni performed in front of more than 30,000 people at the Festival International de Carthage in 2 sold out shows with tickets selling out in less than 2 hours. It was one of the largest events in the country’s history.
The audience was one of the loudest we’ve ever experienced – from soccer chants to the entire audience erupting for Yanni in unison. You couldn’t help but be overtaken by the evening. Everyone was on a musical journey together and the feeling will last a lifetime.
“This is a great country and you are great people. We will never forget you Tunisia!” -Yanni
Yanni joined the country at a time that was healing to us all. Reports of the concert left us all in awe:
Yanni will be back – we look forward to experiencing more of what this beautiful country has to offer.
