Mideast Tunes offers a platform for socially engaged musicians in the Arab world and Iran. The mission is to bridge barriers of faith and geography to unite people committed to fostering constructive discourse through music. 

The project is manifested from the desire to promote bands and musicians that would otherwise never be given a second glance in the international scene. Mideast Tunes feels that most people would never think to look to regions like the Middle East and North Africa for highly thought provoking music. The need to change this is the driving force behind Mideast Tunes.

The team believe that music can change the world, and that the musicians of the Middle East and North Africa will lead the way.

Founded in 2010 in Bahrain, the site has expanded to serve as a primary resource for discovering up and coming Middle Eastern talents.
