Alpen Capital celebrated ten years of successful operations in Dubai with its annual Global Fusion concert on Saturday 1st February, 2014 at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel. The concert also marked the launch of Alpen Capital’s independent asset management entity – Alpen Asset Advisors. H.E. Essa Abdulfattah Kazim, the Governor of the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) was the guest of honour at the event.

Alpen Capital started its operations in the DIFC ten years ago and has established a strong brand identity over the years closely working with some of the largest business conglomerates in the GCC and India. Over the last decade, Alpen Capital’s signature client event, Global Fusion, has brought together talent from across the globe for an outstanding musical experience and has in turn become one of the most sought after events on Dubai’s cultural calendar. The concert is also known for highlighting talented UAE National artistes and providing them an opportunity to perform with leading international artistes. Alpen Capital has been awarded the Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Patrons of the Arts award every year since 2010 for its patronage of the arts.

This year’s concert featured Grammy award winner Pandit Vishwamohan Bhatt in the lead on the Mohan Veena – a rechristened version of the western Hawaiian guitar. The concert also included musical geniuses such as Clive Carroll the brilliant acoustic guitarist from the UK, Louis Banks, the grand master of Jazz music from India on the Keyboards, the versatile Ranjit Barot on Western Drums and Percussion, Gwyneth Wentink from Holland on the classical Harp, Mohamed Farghaly and Mohamed Mohamed Farghaly from Egypt on the Oudh and Kanoo, Satyajit Talwalkar, one of the brightest young tabla exponents from India, Elie Afif from Lebanon on the Bass Guitar and the child prodigy Khawlah Al Rayhy from the UAE on the violin. Adding a visual element to the musical fusion were Aditi Bhagwat from India and La Conja from the USA presenting a spectacular fusion of Kathak and Flamenco dance forms.

“As I look back I am very proud of how Alpen Capital has successfully established itself in the region and created a niche for itself. Global Fusion was first organized to mark the launch of Alpen Capital ten years ago. It is amazing to see that what started as a client networking event has evolved into a brand in itself featuring around 107 internationally renowned musicians from around the globe. I am very glad that our clients and special guests joined us in our ten year celebrations and enjoyed the musical experience last evening,” says Rohit Walia, Executive Chairman, Alpen Capital and Alpen Asset Advisors Limited
