Full Moon Desert Drumming in Dubai

African Drums
The Full Moon Desert Drumming season will begin its first session one week from now. We went in March last year and had an amazing and unique experience. I was organizing my photos and saw the album, remembered that I haven't shared it here yet. It was something different from all the other desert trips we've had and I wanted to share them with you. We played music using the djembe drums (a native African drum) under the bright moonlight. Felt like we were in Africa. With our own tribe. And, we sound good, really good.

We arrived at the desert edge at 6 pm and transferred to a Toyota Land Cruiser that took us to the camp deep inside the Al Aweer desert. The ride to the camp was a mini dune bashing for us especially our driver was extra enthusiastic to give my kids a fun ride.
