Saudis attend country's first jazz festival


Men and women swayed to music at Saudi Arabia's first-ever jazz festival on Feb. 23, the second of a three-day outdoor event that showcases the kingdom's recent efforts to shed its conservative image.

"This festival shows that the leadership here wants to let the people open up, to see more things, more cultures," said Salem al-Ahmed, who attended with friends.

The country will stage more than 5,000 shows, festivals and concerts in 2018, double the number of last year. It will also open its first cinema in March after a more than 35-year ban. (Reuters, AP)
