The original music of the Emirates is very rich, uniting the many varied traditions that came to and traversed the region by land and sea. Bedouin Arab music, along with music of the mountain regions and emerging cities of the peninsula, mixes with influences from Persian, Indian, and African cultures. Combine this with the sounds of urban Cairo, Damascus, and Baghdad, and the result is a unique blend of melody and rhythm.
