The event is finished.

As a lyricist and playwright, the name of the Moroccan poet Abdelaziz Tahiri is associated with the experience of the musical groups that flourished in Morocco from the 1970s. He is one of main pillars of Nass El Ghiwane and Jil Jilala music bands for whom he wrote exquisite poems heavily influenced by heritage and folklore. He is the guest of the House of Poetry in Manama in a special evening entitled “Brilliant Zajaliyat of Al-Taheri.”

When his soul left his body and this world, he left a house for poetry, a place for his things, and walls where the poetry he loved would remain. The Bahraini poet Ibrahim Al Arrayed, and all those who (followed) him in his literary journey and translated works, were retained by the Sheikh Ebrahim bin Mohammed Al Khalifa Centre for Culture and Research in his city which he belonged, Manama. For it was the house of fame, as the first among the homes of cultural centers outside the city of Muharraq.
