The second Chinese Arts Festival concluded on March 31 in Manama, the capital of Bahrain. The week-long event was the Chinese government’s celebration for Manama being named the Arab Capital of Culture 2012. Chinese officials said the festival was part of an effort to boost ties between Manama and Beijing.

Hosted by the Chinese embassy in Bahrain, the festival involved over 100 artists and showcased Chinese ethnic dances, Shaolin kungfu, one of the four major Chinese embroidery arts, as well as dances and music integrated with Arabian elements.
