RIYADH: Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Culture announced on Thursday that it would run a competition called “Maazoufat Al-Qahwa Al-Saoudiyya” (Saudi Coffee Symphony), as part of the “Year of Saudi Coffee” activities.

This is part of the Quality of Life Program. One of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 Realization Programs, the Ministry of Culture hopes to promote the cultural and historical value of Saudi Arabic coffee.

Competition aims to encourage musicians to make creative pieces that mix sounds of Arabic instruments and sounds of Saudi coffee machines. There are cash prizes of SR150,000 ($40,000)

The ministry called on musicians wishing to participate to log on to engage.moc.gov.sa/yosc_music, noting that Nov. 15 would be the closing date for application and registration. Applications will be accepted until November 30, before winners are announced Dec. 29.

The winner of the first prize will get SR100,000. The winner of the second prize will receive SR50,000.

The idea of ​​running the competition was born from the phases of Saudi coffee preparation, which start with roasting, flipping, grinding and pounding the coffee beans to note triplets, quadruplets and quintuplets, before finally pouring the coffee into cups, following a particular rhythm that tells of the depth of Saudi culture and its music.
