Kuwaiti singer Al-Mufarrej documented folklore – Info. Min.

Kuwait Information Minister Abdulrahman Al-Mutairi said Sunday iconic singer Abdulaziz Al-Mufarrej, also known as Shadi Al-Khaleej, contributed to documentation of folkloric songs and “genuine Kuwait tradition.” Al-Mutairi, also Minister of State for Youth and head of the National Council of Culture, Art and Letters (NCCAL), said Al-Mufarrej “is highly regarded within the artistic movement in Kuwait, Gulf and Arab regions because of his distinguished works he presented throughout the years.” Al-Mutairi made the remarks while visiting Al-Mufarrej, board chairman of Kuwait artists society, at his home to inquire about his health condition.

Kuwaitis, he said, remembered Al-Mufarrej as a lead singer in national operettas and indeed “setting an example in giving.” The minister urged young artists to follow the lead of those iconic artists like Al-Mufarrej.
