Popular Kuwaiti singer honored with certificate
January 12, 2019, 4:22 pm

Popular Kuwaiti singer Mubarak Al Rashed was honored by the Indian Ambassador with a certificate of appreciation from India’s Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj, at a special event held at the Indian embassy auditorium on 9 January, to celebrate the 15th Pravasai Bhartiya Divas.

The talented singer was also felicitated with a shawl by senior Indian community members, Ashok Kalra and Rajpal Tyagi. As a Kuwaiti, Mr. Mubarak’s rendition of the song 'Vaishnav Jan To’, one of Mahatma Gandhi’s favorite songs, during the recent visit to Kuwait by the Indian foreign minister, greatly impressed Ms. Swaraj, who highly appreciated his diction and tone in rendering the song.

Mubarak’s love for singing Hindi songs was discovered a few years back and since then he has been performing at several Indian cultural events all over Kuwait. His passion for Bollywood movies and his ability to sing Hindi songs without formal training or knowledge of the language has meant that Mubarak’s talent has been widely appreciated.

Mubarak told The Times Kuwait that he is very happy and comfortable singing Hindi songs and his passion has led him to experiment with Malayalam and Konkani songs as well. Mubarak’s repertoire includes many old Hindi classics that are timeless.

Mubarak also expressed his gratitude to Indian ambassador and the Indian community for the support, love and encouragement given to him. He feels that this rare recognition given to him by the Government of India, has paid off the hard work and effort he has put into promoting Hindi music among local residents of Kuwait.
