Love live music? Feeling the post-Christmas pinch on your purse strings? Well, have we good news for you then.

Popular hotel chain, Aloft Hotels, has been throwing a series of free-to-attend gigs starring some of the hottest names in the region as part of the Live at Aloft Hotels Homecoming Tour, and the final stop on the four-stop tour is taking place this week.

Music-lovers can head to W XYZ bar at the trendy cinema-themed Aloft City Centre Deira this Wednesday (January 8) for an evening of soulful tunes from some of Dubai’s best local talent.

The stellar line-up includes independent talent, as well as Universal Music Group MENA artists Lea Makhoul, Almena and Stephon LaMar.

French-Lebanese singer Lea Makhoul has shared the stage with the likes of Redfoo, Sam Martin, Lost Frequencies and Faydee – to name a few – while Egyptian band Almena won the Project: Aloft Star UAE competition in 2018, beating some of the best artists in the region.

LaMar took home the award for Best Original Act at the Time Out Dubai Music & Nightlife Awards last year and with a voice smoother than butter, there’s no doubt he’ll be swooning and crooning the crowd.
