As part of its continued efforts to create engaging, regionally relevant content, premium SUV manufacturer Land Rover has revealed an exciting new collaboration with Sony Music Entertainment Middle East.
These two major industry players are merging the automotive and entertainment worlds together to create a powerful celebration of music and cultural diversity across the Arab region.
Following Land Rover Mena’s foray into the arts with The Calligraphy Project film and installations, as well as the My Journey, My Inspiration film series, this partnership is the latest example of Land Rover’s continuously evolving ‘Myland’ creative communications platform, designed to celebrate the impact Arab culture has had on today’s modern society.
One of a number of music collaborations to take place between Land Rover and Sony Music Entertainment over the coming months, My Land, My Music will bring together renowned music producers, Jean-Marie Riachi from Lebanon and Omar Basaad from Saudi Arabia, as they undertake a musical journey, meeting, discovering and documenting the musicians and sounds of the region’s varied communities.
Inspired by Land Rover’s ties to the Mena region’s culture and people, the different sounds captured will be arranged by Jean-Marie and his world-class studio team to produce the final soundtrack that honours the land, heritage and people of the Middle East. In a youthful twist on the concept, a number of club remixes will be produced by Omar to ensure the project captures the imagination of all music fans.
Produced by Emirati film director and long-term friend of the Land Rover brand, Ali Mostafa, and directed by Emirati filmmaker Ahmed Abdulqader, the My Land, My Music documentary will tell the story behind the sounds recorded along the way.
Charged with visually bringing to life this project, Mostafa and his award-winning team will follow Riachi and Basaad from city to city to document the fascinating musical creation process behind My Land, My Music.
Hannah Naji, marketing director at Jaguar Land Rover Mena, said, “Myland is all about recognizing and celebrating the people, places, sounds, heritage and culture which have shaped this beautiful region.
“With My Land, My Music, we are evolving our Myland platform by creating unique content through yet another art form – music, which itself is deeply rooted in the cultural heritage of the region.”
