In this way we want to inform you that KABAH was invited to sing in Qatar representing Mexico on November 28, 2022.
We were very excited to be chosen to worthily represent our country in a world-class event, however today we made the decision to cancel our participation in said event.
We all have the same heart, that is and has been the flag of KABAH, coupled with respect and inclusion. We understand the uses and customs of other countries, but we choose to defend the values and one of the strongest pillars of KABAH is love in all its expressions.
Thank you for your understanding and infinite gratitude to the people who invited us and trusted KABAH.
