Culture in Dubai

Even though the music/theatre/art scene in Dubai may not be apparently visible, I know from participation in many events that there is more than enough going on to satiate all types and forms of ‘creative hunger’. I will attempt to include a lot more posts of activities that I attend.

This year, like the last year I believe, Emirates NBD has sponsored a series of Indian music concerts at DUCTAC. Shubha Mudgal, L Subramaniyam and Rashid Khan have performed as part of the series and stalwarts like Shiv Kumar Sharma and Pt Jasraj are expected to perform in the next few months.

What is sometimes a lot more heartening than the performances themselves is the deep interest that people breed in their hearts for culture. To see elders and youngsters participate, enjoy and applaud performers in a city often blamed for its non-existant cultural spectrum is truly impressive.

Apart from this series, I have also recently attended the Cirque du Soir and The Illusionists events and have really loved the shows.

So before you join the ‘complainers’ next time, I encourage you to check events at popular websites and give it a go :)
