AR Rahman To Open A Recording Studio In Dubai


Dubai is no stranger to keeping its finger on the pulse (or beat, if you will) when it comes to being a place where just about anything is possible. Now, it’s adding yet another string to its bow with the announcement of a brand new recording studio.

The state-of-the-art studio, named The Firdaus Studio by AR Rahman, is located at the Expo 2020 site, and thus, won’t be open until October 20, 2020 when the world expo kicks off. Rahman is a celebrated Bollywood and Hollywood composer who has won Oscars and Grammy awards, best known for creating the soundtrack for Slumdog Millionaire

AR Rahman said: “This world-leading studio will attract the cream of the industry to Dubai. Working with the most exciting female musical talents of the region, the Firdaus Women’s Orchestra will enable Dubai to become a focal point for making ground-breaking new music, and I look forward to being part of that.”
