It is also perfect networking occasion for us,” said Rohit Walia, Executive Vice Chairman and CEO, Bank Sarasin-Alpen Group and Alpen Capital Group, organisers of Global Fusion Concert. In the beginning the concept only revolved around Fusion music. Over the past three it has tried to fuse contemporary dance in the line up adding a visual element to Global Fusion. “We have also tried to use the platform to highlight talents of local musicians in the region and provide them with an opportunity to perform with internationally renowned artists,” said Walia. “In addition to putting together a different and entertaining line up every year, we also felicitate an artiste who has been integral to our Fusion concerts,” he said The event has honoured many international artistes for their contributions to Global Fusion including artistes such as George Brooks, Dr L Subramanian, Charbel Rouhana and Vikku Vinayakram. Fillipo Schiavini, Technical Manager and Naren Gurtu the Troupe Manager will be travelling to Doha along with the artistes. Global Fusion is a flagship event and is organised across locations since 2005. The first Fusion event in Qatar was held in 2008 to mark the launch of Qatar operations and we are in the third year of our Fusion concerts here.
