April 24, 2019

A new collection called ‘Sounds of Arabia’ is also being introduced.

Apple Music has just announced that it is now currently offering 50 million songs available to stream on its platform across users in the Middle East. To celebrate this new milestone, the service is launching a new destination called ‘Sounds of Arabia’ that will showcase a collection of genres in the Middle East that is curated by local experts in the region.

Sounds of Arabia was made as a tribute to all the creative projects and different underground scenes that have been proven popular in the region – this includes Jordanian band Ayloul and Tunisian duo Yuma – all of which are ready to stream on Apple Music.

Apple Music is also giving local artists in the region to showcase their skills on an international audience through editorial support and even on Beats1, the platform’s global livestream internet radio station.

Apple Music can be accessed on all iOS devices, including the Mac, Apple TV, and even PCs and Android devices. You can sign up for a three-month trial of the service before paying 19.99 AED per month.
