World music

The national anthem of Kuwait arranged for Brass Quintet.

Rarely heard within Kuwait itself, Kuwait’s anthem, like Jordan‘s, has a formal full version of the anthem played on formal occasions, and a short version, which is simply the refrain of the full version. The “national salute” of Kuwait is shorter still, which consists of the first 6 measures of the anthem.

Al-Nasheed Al-Watani (Arabic: النشيد الوطني‎, an-našid al-waṭanī, meaning "National Anthem"). The Kuwaiti national anthem is by poet Ahmad Meshari Al-Adwani, Ibrahim Al-Soula composed the music and Ahmad Ali arranged the composition. It was first broadcast on 25 February 1978.

Before 1978 Amiri Salute was used. It was composed by Yusuf Adees in 1951. Now the salute is the first six bars of the national anthem.

The anthem is seldom used in Kuwait and is used primarily for special occasions. As such, many Kuwaitis do not use the national anthem.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.

Static preview

The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.

Interactive preview

The interactive preview also shows a preview of the first page, but it's a bit slower to load. The preview is displayed using the Sibelius Cloud Publishing technology from Avid. With most scores, this technology will provide a higher quality preview, as well as being able to switch to full screen mode and also play the displayed music to you.

Printing after purchase

After you have purchased this item the Cloud Publishing technology is utilised to provide the printing mechanism for the music. As such, we recommend checking that the Interactive Preview displays correctly on your device before committing to a purchase.
