'Ishy Bilady’ National Anthem Of UAE

Play image description
'Ishy Bilady' - A Film For National Day, #Longlivemynation, is edited in time with rousing new music composed for the Emirati national anthem. The two and a half minute film features iconic moments in the lives of the Emirati people, its leaders and those living and working in the UAE. Human themes are embraced: the warmth of Emirati hospitality; the life of a new baby; the pride of the national football team; and the Emirati tradition of diving for pearls. Shots of scientists, the military and the nations' university students depict the UAE as it is now and hint at how it will continue to thrive in the future.
