According to Gulf News, Saudi official Turki Al Shaikh posted a video of a Saudi man wearing a helmet and playing violin on his Twitter account. He captioned it: ‘Wanted for Riyadh season.’

The post went viral after thousands of Saudis shared the video asking if anyone knows the anonymous violinist behind the helmet.

Turki, who is the chairman of the general authority for entertainment, not only appreciated his skill but also asked him to come forward and join Riyadh season, a festival that will run from October 15 till December 15.

In the shared video, the musician who is seen wearing a helmet to hide his identity, first produces the sound of a motorcycle through violin chords and then skillfully plays his musical piece.
