Discover new global sounds as powerful tradition-bearers and genre-shattering musicians converge over two evenings that blend cultures, styles, and genres.

There’s a place in the sea where saltwater and freshwater meet and coexist, but don’t dilute one another – Barzakh. Barzakh Festival draws inspiration from this idea to create a meeting place of musical streams that crosses diverse cultures. Global-minded musicians reflecting varied influences and identities, bring the contemporary and the traditional together in a boundary-shattering lineup filled with musical revelations.

In its 7th edition this 2 day festival features:

On the first day, Friday, Feb 3

  • CGS – Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino (Italy)
  • Lemma (Algeria)

On the second day, Saturday, Feb 4

  • ADG7 – Ak Dan Gwang Chil (Korea)
  • Sahra Halgan (Somaliland) – Abu Dhabi Debut
