STRUMMING UP SUCCESS
On a fine Saturday morning, I went to Souq es Sabt, my favourite farmer’s market at the Inter-Continental garden. Food was on my mind, so I got few sandwiches and a soft drink and strutted up and down the garden in search for a perfect spot to savour my grilled cheese goodness. Finally I decided to do it the Omani way and sat on the grass. Soon beautiful, raspy vocals floating through the dry air of the garden graced my ears. I was so mesmerised that I got up and walked closer to the mini stage to get a glimpse of what was going on, only to find a young man strumming away on his guitar. There was something so magical in his rendition that I remained spellbound for the next few hours. Meet Ghazi Al Balushi, the man with the guitar.
