Composer and multi-instrumentalist from Mashrou’ Leila band, Firas Abou Fakher says, “We are excited to see the launch of The Balcony Series this week. Support from major brands is rare in the region and to have a forward thinking and daring brand like Apple initiate a project like this is strongly needed. We can’t wait to be back in Dubai and see everyone there!”

Syrian singer, Ghaliaa adds “This is a one of a kind opportunity. I’m so thankful for the insane love, support, and motivation I have been receiving since day one from the community. We as artists in the Arab World, are very thrilled to have a platform such as Apple Music which features our creative work with the world and helps us gain exposure and resonance.”
