Abu Dhabi Culture presents the Abu Dhabi Music Programme, which revives the incredibly rich dialogue around music, from cultures around the world.
Through its programs, Abu Dhabi Classics, Bait Al Oud Series, Sound of UAE and Umsiyat, the Department of Culture & Tourism Abu Dhabi presents some of the main artists in the field of Arabic and Western classical music with an aim to display how borderlines between the so called 'Western', 'Arabic' and 'Local' classical music have become porous. At the same time, the Department is offering an extended programme dedicated to regional heritage music thus proposing a unique musical panorama for all listeners.
The Department, as part of its musical programme also aims to combine the educational efforts of younger generations and preserve the rich cultural heritage of the UAE by organizing several dialogues, workshops and lectures by some of the most important contemporary musicians in a bid to revive the culture of dialogue, tolerance and openness to other cultures.
