Expo 2020 Dubai released its official song on Tuesday, less than 10 days before it opens to the world. This song is titled “This Is Our Time,” which highlights UAE pride, celebrates the future, and brings nations together from around the world, as well as conveys Expo’s overarching theme “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future” through music.
The band was led by Hussain Al Jassmi, ambassador of Expo 2020 and one of the UAE’s biggest artists. He was accompanied by Mayssa Karaa, who is the artistic director of Expo’s all-female orchestra. The statement said Almas, a 21-year-old Emirati singer-songwriter, was named among Spotify’s Best Female Talent in the Middle East.
Managing director at the Expo 2020 Dubai, Marjan Faraidooni, said, “World Expos bring people together, and we are welcoming a remarkable group of artists to contribute their voices to the song, which combines the past, present, and future. Thousands of visitors will experience once-in-a-lifetime moments as we welcome the world in less than 10 days.”
