Al-Saddiq Al-Raddi Cardiff Reading in Arabic for the Sudanese Community

In the second of two special evenings arranged by the Sudanese community, Al-Saddiq Al-Raddi read his poems in Arabic alongside singer and oud player, Tariq Abu Obida.

Saddiq and Tariq have been friends since childhood. They are both extremely famous in Sudan and in the Sudanese disapora. Tariq has lived in exile in The Netherlands for many years and, although he visits the UK regularly, this was the first time that he and Saddiq had a chance to perform together here. They received an overwhelming response from a capacity audience who were clearly both moved and delighted to be able to witness two important artists performing together in Wales for the very first time.
