Al Mankous

About The Festival

Within the framework of the strategy of the Cultural and Heritage Programs and Festivals Management Committee in Abu Dhabi, and its continuous keenness to introduce the folklore and enhance its role in building the national identity, the importance of establishing a competitive Gulf program for the performer Al Mankoos comes in.


Additional Information

In the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, the program hosts participants from all countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council to compete for the performance of Tarj Al Mankoos, one of the Emirati and Gulf heritage arts for singing Nabati poetry. Participants enter this competition through several stages, starting from the stage of auditions to the live episodes, and concluding with the victory of one participant to be the champion of the season in the performance of Tarij Al-Mankoos.
