This concert series curates an unconventional blend of music from different countries, genres and styles
The Umsiyat concert series is a platform for music and poetry performances that integrate various forms and expressions of these arts. The fusion performances bring together sometimes disparate and surprising expressions of musical performance into a single act.
Umsiyat has a universal appeal, drawing art forms and performers from different parts of the globe. It showcases traditional and contemporary forms of music and poetry featuring some of the most renowned performers in their field.
The concerts are held at outdoor venues, such as Mother of the Nation Park, which adds to the charm and vibrancy of the performances, and makes the events accessible to fans of all ages and backgrounds.
Umsiyat is part of the annual music programme of the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi that also features Abu Dhabi Classics
and other events promoting Arabic and Western music.
