Need some a dash of culture in your ears while you work from home?

Louvre Abu Dhabi, in partnership with music streaming app anghami, has launched the first playlists of a series starting their new collaboration.

The partnership will see the curation of audio playlists with a bespoke selection of soundtracks that respond to different themes, moods and inspirations found in Louvre Abu Dhabi’s collections.

Each of the seven created playlists contains 20-30 tracks, picked by anghami’s curators, to remind you of visits to the museum, which is currently closed in line with government guidelines.

You can listen to 'A Journey Through Civilisations', 'Eternal Classics,' 'Electro Pulse' and more for free through Louvre Abu Dhabi’s and anghami’s websites and anghami’s mobile app, which can be downloaded from App Store and Google Play.

"These kinds of initiatives showcase the brilliant work conducted by our interpretation and cultural programming teams behind the scenes to keep our audiences engaged at a time when they cannot physically access the museum.

"We will also be launching additional audio experiences of our museum to stay connected with audiences wherever they are in the world and continue telling stories of cultural connections,” says Manuel Rabaté, director of Louvre Abu Dhabi.

“Our focus at anghami has always been to support our community across the MENA region, especially around nurturing the world of arts,” said Elie Abou Saleh, Vice President for the GCC Market at anghami.

“Our partnership with Louvre Abu Dhabi is a further step in that direction. Both teams have worked closely to use the power of sound to transport listeners into a journey of time, divided across the centuries, in a similar manner to what one might experience visually while visiting Louvre Abu Dhabi,” he adds.
