Dealing with Yalla has always been a professional, pleasant and mutually beneficial experience for us at Music Monkeys. As a far reaching publication that has become indispensable as a guide to families living in Abu Dhabi, Yalla offers businesses like ours targeted marketing and a focused outreach. Advertising in its pages helps us spread awareness on new venues for our classes, or reach out to the community during staff recruitment, or even share updates on our party planning. We have always found the Yalla team to be friendly, supportive and easy to work with, and Music Monkeys is proud to be featured within the pages of a publication we consider both important and informative.Lisa Irwin - Music Monkeys
