                                                              Our cultural heritage provides endless inspiration and sources of creative material to play with. The preservation of traditional forms of play allow stories to be retold and cross to a new generation. The games, songs, stories and performances we experience in our childhood define our cultures, they inform or memories and shared experiences. By exploring and recording how we play we grow our understanding of our cultures and traditions. Meet the artists who are recording Saudi’s play culture, exploring and playing with Arabic music and preserving the play from the past for the future.
