Dubai is known as the land of multicultural population and the best way to amalgamate these different cultures is music. The increasing number of music festivals held in Dubai is the live example of the effort being made to bring all the diverse cultures together. Recently, it was felt that the Jazz market was quite ignored and special initiatives are required for the revival of Jazz music. It took two years of thorough research to come up with the project with the theme of 'Much more than jazz'. This became the foundation stone of the Dubai Jazz Festival that is now held every year.
