‘The Beginning’, a classical piece composed by Dana Al Fardan, was recently announced as the official theme song for Hamad International Airport.
The music for ‘The Beginning’ was composed by Dana Al Fardan, founder of DNA Records, Qatar’s first home-grown record label that is based in both Doha and London, with the musical piece performed by the Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra in front of the iconic Lamp Bear at HIA as well as next to the airport’s runway. ‘The Beginning’ will be played around the airport, including its lounges and lifts, and the special video will also be shown on board as part of the in-flight entertainment on Qatar Airways flights. Commenting during the HIA Airport Stakeholders Appreciation Dinner at The St. Regis Doha, Al Fardan said: “I am beyond privileged and honoured for my song ‘The Beginning’ to be HIA’s theme music, and this is truly a dream come true. As an artist, it is always rewarding to have your work recognised and I am humbled that my song will now have HIA as its platform.”
