Yas Island Abu Dhabi is back with another exciting summer hit, featuring the iconic Kuwaiti Miami Band with a lively new twist to their beloved song AACHAW. This year’s collaboration builds on the success of last year’s groovy hit AlHamdullah w Chefnakom, inviting everyone to experience the joy and excitement of the Island - perfectly indicating the unmatched fun spirit of the destination. “‘AACHAW’ embodies the joy of celebrating life,” says the band. “The new rendition is designed to reflect the vibrant and energetic spirit of the destination, encouraging everyone to embrace #FunHasNoAge and enjoy the world-class attractions and entertainment options available. The song’s upbeat melody and cheerful lyrics embody Yas Island’s spirit, while its nostalgic undertones evoke fond memories and connect with fans of many generations across the Arab world.”

Founded by Tariq Qassem Muhammad, Khaled Abdul Jalil Al-Randi, Laila Muhammad and Mishaal Saleh Laili in 1991, Miami Band has become a recognisable name in the Arab world. Inspired by a beautiful handwritten sign displaying ‘Miami’ during a summer club season, the band adopted the name as their own, representing their collective spirit and passion. In 1991, Miami Band marked their official debut with the album Sabouha, featuring the chart-topping hit single of the same name. That song catapulted them to fame, and gained them widespread recognition in the Arab world.

Their success continued to soar as they delivered numerous songs, including the hit Hamdellah ou Shefnakom, which helped them find their way into the hearts and homes of listeners everywhere. Other notable tracks such as Sekkar Zyadah and Sheilouha Sheila, have solidified their status as a beloved musical group cherished by both the young and old. Liam Findlay, CEO of Miral Destinations, the destination management company responsible for the management of leisure, entertainment and cultural landmarks in Abu Dhabi, including Yas Island, said: “Building on the successful partnership with Miami Band last year, we are excited to collaborate once again to create yet another memorable song that resonates deeply with our audience in the GCC market and beyond.

“Yas Island Abu Dhabi continues to be a leading tourism destination, setting the standard for leisure and entertainment in the region. Our diverse offerings provide unparalleled experiences for people of all ages, and we are excited to meet and exceed guest expectations with every new addition. As the summer holidays approach, we look forward to welcoming guests and families to enjoy everything Yas Island has to offer.”
