We sponsor music performances and concerts with well known as well as young emerging talents to spread awareness about Arabic music and its importance.

Unique instruments such as the oud and tabla are common in Arabic music, and have a different sound than the western varieties of guitars and drums. Another distinctive feature is Arabic quarter tones, which brings a complexity to the music that you cannot find anywhere else!
