I guess the music will be like Burj al Arab intruments music.
These instruments have some Arabians beats and rhythm

Those songs such as:
01. Spirit of the hammam; 02. Deep serenity; 03. Source of energy; 04. Eden way; 05. Oriental garden; 06. Peaceful; 07. Joyful time; 08. East beauty; 09. Waterfall; 10. Arabian jewel; 11. Chaadi; 12. Sublime oasis; 13. Al Mahara, etc.


Cheers!

Even home pools more recently have automated sprinkler heads at the bottom of the pool which sweep and collect dirt.

Someone has a full time job!

Who is Ricardo Kaka, anyway?
an AC Milan player?

For sure, no relation at all.

You have to pronounce my name as Caca (as in 'caca dance') not Kaka.

Those pics are just testing. When they expect to "fire up" the fountains (grand opening)?

Wrong topic, but anyway...if you'd take a moment to look for it at the Dubai (continental forums) or anywhere at the internet, you'd know better.
