Dubai's pioneering original music band featuring a unique acoustic sound that combines elements of Arabic, Rock, Jazz, Blues and Folk music Dahab was formed by Sharif Maghraby (composition, guitars, vocals), Majed Fassi (composition, guitars, vocals) and Adham Sharkawy (percussion) as a response to a need by the Dubai International Jazz Festival for an acoustic cover band in 2004. Since then, they have developed their signature ‘acoustic ethnic fusion’ sound to include a mix of instrumental and vocal original compositions, have recorded and released 2 full-length albums, have expanded their formation into a 5-piece band and have played to thousands of people across Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Cairo, and Bahrain.
