In Dubai, it is not only about the diversity of the population, you could also see an art scene with its members from different nationalities gathering for the love of music. Desert Experiment is a series of concerts that gather rock and metal musicians, and provide them with a venue that enables them to create their own original songs, and play in front of an audience.

The 26-member band perform the Desert Experiment once a year; last April, they performed at the Majestic Hotel, and the concert turned into a carnival of celebration for the love of rock and metal genres.

‘I never saw myself playing in a rock or metal band, but because of the Desert Experiment I went on stage and did what I had to do,’ Waddeah Al-Meshkhas, a bass guitar player, told Dubai Post.

Gorgin Asadi, the founder of Desert Experiment describes the event as a ‘chance to gather those who have a common love for the music; we play together, and make friendships. That’s what we are about’.
