Hegra Candlelight Classic ph.Emad Alhusayni Balich Wonder Studio

The archaeological site, just 22 minutes far from the city of AlUla, has never been used for concerts of such intimate character.

The first concert that took place on the 24th December 2021 and the next one that will take place on the 31st December 2021 are produced by Balich Wonder Studio , the live entertainment group, leader in the creation and production of large-scale ceremonies, events and shows, brand and territorial experiences worldwide.

The audience live a full emotional experience by listening to the evocative repertoire performed live by the Stefan Lombard ensemble (piano, violin, cello and oud). The famous South African musical Director has created a suite (a collection of short musical pieces) from classic compositions to contemporary, Arab, movie soundtracks and a revised take on pop music.

More than 500 high-tech candles are the magic surrounding of these musical performances: sculpted by hand, they allow spectacular graphic patterns that emotionally enhance the special moments by blending harmoniously with the forms of the archaeological site, creating a landmark that merges the suggestions of the past and the dynamic of the contemporary.

The events exploit the latest technologies as the candles thanks to their various control possibilities, can shine all night, cozily shaping the surrounding and could reach four times the brightness of a traditional candle without burning or melting: the unique color combination allows for the same warmth as a real flame candle. In addition, its innovative algorithm can make an entire set of candles flicker differently, just like real candles would.

These two special events are exclusive occasions within the suggestive AlUla Moments Season, specifically designed for ‘Winter At Tantora’. The whole season is filled with high-end cultural, musical, wellness and arts events, as well as star-studded concerts, adventurous activities and immersive heritage experiences. BWS-KSA, the branch of the Balich Wonder Studio group based in Saudi Arabia, has been appointed by the Royal Commission for AlUla to produce multiple activities throughout the entire season that will enfold in late March.

The area and the city of AlJadidah has become an exclusive gathering spot, divided in various hubs where different cultures from all over the world, itinerant performing artists and the best of the circus arts will mix and mingle in the spirit of nomadic culture and the traditional Saudi Arabian hospitality with the aim to attract the widest audience and be inclusive.

Methane Electrolysis Can Decarbonize LNG/LPG Imports and Achieve EU’s Climate Targets18.8.2022 15:00:00 EEST | Press release

To become independent of Russian natural gas imports by 2027, the European Union is increasing near-term imports of US or Azerbaijan liquefied natural gas (LNG) or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). The main element of LNG, methane, is the second leading greenhouse gas contributing to climate change. Environmental organizations warn that long-term supply contracts for the fossil LNG will undermine the European Green Deal. The German company Graforce has developed a methane electrolysis technology (plasmalysis) that uses LNG or LPG to produce hydrogen and solid carbon for dioxide-free energy generation. Compared to water electrolysis, plasmalysis requires only one fifth the energy to produce the same amount of hydrogen. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20220818005013/en/ Graforce has developed methane electrolysis plants.
