There are so many genres and sub genres of music on the UAE scene that remain unrecognised and under-appreciated. Music that you can swirl to, music that you can crimp and bob to.. Whatever makes the weekdays less stressful.

Grab a drink, put on your dancing shoes and head out to one of these crazy music nights in Dubai:

Like Gloria Estefan said,

The rhythm is gonna get you.
