International Cultural Festival in BabilPrefecture was took place!

On May 4, 2012, although there were security concern in Iraq, the International Culture Festival was held in Babil Prefecture. Lots of artists from around the world got together.

BabilInternational Culture Festival has been held over nine days on the theme of "global fusion of cultures and civilizations". Seminars to read poet and recital, music, theater, art exhibitions have been performed. On the final day, May 12, classical music by Iraqi National Symphony Orchestra, Iraq music and Arab music have been performed.

This festival was scheduled to be held last year in fact. However, it was canceled by Iraqi government because that might lead us to raise the anger of Muslim political party in the Babilprefecture.  In this year, we could finally achieve it.
