ANSWER:
Answers will vary.

 The maritime silk road is an ancient and contemporary trade route that connects East Africa, the Arab Gulf, the Persian Gulf, India, and Southeast Asia. Travel around the Indian Ocean, and all the way to the China Sea (and back), has been ongoing for centuries.
 Although Oman is part of the Arab world, Omani culture features many influences from Africa, Iran, India, and so on.
 The song Batal Al Bab is in an Afro-Omani style called bar'a that comes from the Dhofar province of Oman.
 The music and dance style bar'a was recognized by UNESCO and registered on the list of intangible cultural heritage.
