Don't miss out on this art installation that will reconnect you to the nature

There are 30 date palms singing in unison as part of Louvre Abu Dhabi’s new interactive installation, Singing Trees, which has opened to the public this Tuesday, February 25.

The songs, which include the traditional Emirati Ayyala, play on speakers strapped around each palm. With the use of presence sensors, the volume of these tunes increases when visitors get closer to the trees. The more people interact with the trees at the same time, the more resonant the music will be.

The world of art has found a creative way to address the climate crises and environmental destruction. The aim of this installation is to draw the visitors' attention to the nature and the environment.

Visitors can experience Singing Trees for free until Saturday, March 7, after which it will travel to Paris in September.
