Dutch DJ Satori, also known as Djordje Petrovic, has been hypnotising crowds in the likes of Amsterdam and Ibiza for some time now. Much to our delight, he is now bringing Maktub - a melting pot of world beats and earthly trance - to Dubai on 26 April.
Meaning “It has been written” in Arabic, Maktub will be a unique showcase of harmonising visuals, live instruments and electronic world sounds, all whilst being romantically inspired by the first time Satori ever made music. Sounds dreamy, no?
This initial inspiration is close to home, with his influence stemming from Arabian Nights, a well-loved compilation of Middle Eastern tales.
As this is an all-day event, and perfect for the weather at this time of year, Satori will be joined by other artists such as Be Svendsen, whose music is described as ‘hypnotic desert-circus-shaman-cowboy-techno’ (yes, apparently this is a thing) and Persian-born Bahramji who will be providing his usual uplifting meditative beats.
This sure isn't a typical 'let's see how many beats per minute we can aggressively push into this song’ kind of party; it's more intended to break boundaries and combine cultures, featuring yoga sessions, meditation workshops, painting, hula-hooping (we’re sold) and even some Arabic coffee readings. Such a vibe!
