The Live Aloft Hotel Homecoming Tour kicked off at the Aloft Me'aisam with a well-architectured line up of local artists. The intimacy of the setting was a perfect fit for the heartwarming voice and string-serenading of Dubai artist Danny Aridi, who connected with the cosy crowd through a sequence of originals and classic RnB covers. The Universal Music signed artist also unveiled his new single 'Act Naturally' on the eve of its release date.
UAE based Mahdi Baccouch flipped the linguistic script, taking the night to a new direction with an Arabic ballad opener that got the audience quickly reaching for their phones, whether to capture footage, or to Shazam the song in time! The tailor-suited Tunisian then effortlessly brought those in attendance to their dancing feet with his 2018 hit 'Bethadaky' to set the tempo
Hadi closed the gig with what he's best known for - his lyric driven, soulful material. The closing artist set the crowd off into the night quite nicely, taking to the floor and singing through his self-produced synth-scape beats.
With three more shows scheduled across the UAE over the coming weeks, Aloft Homecoming Tour is not to be missed as they bring a carefully crafted outfit of UAE musicians to venues in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Al Ain. We highly recommend watching this space
