Dusit Thani Dubai supports world class music
08 February, 2013
Dubai, UAE: Two of Dubai's eagerly anticipated musical acts taking place this month have named Dusit Thani Dubai, the flagship property of Dusit International, as the Hospitality sponsor. The separate concerts will bring renowned artists from across the world to perform in front of tens of thousands of fans.
The first of the events will see British-Australian soft rock duo, Air Supply, taking to the stage at Emirates Golf Club on February 8. Guitarist Graham Russell and lead vocalist Russell Hitchcock have sold in excess of 100 million copies in over three decades. Their most famous songs include Lost in Love, All Out of Love, The One that You Love, Sweet Dreams and Making Love Out of Nothing at All.
Later in the month, for a Valentine's Day special, Nirvana 2013 brings together global award winning artists, who have 43 Grammy nominations and awards between them, to the Dubai World Trade Centre. Headlining will be Ustad Zakir Hussain, returning to the stage after four years, he will be joined by Bela Fleck (Banjo), Edgar Meyer (Upright Bass), U Srinivas (Mandolin) and Rakesh Chaurasia (Flute).
NIRVANA 2013's concept enables the audience to hear musical ensembles for the very first time as the group of musicians, who do not record together on a regular basis, and create something very unique fusion for the audience.
"We are a firm supporter of art and culture with it being engrained within our own DNA and origins. The hotel's entertainers perform a number of instrument numbers and dance performances throughout the day in Benjarong and our lobby, so when we were approached we were delighted to be a part of these two events," Dusit Thani Dubai's General Manager, Prateek Kumar, noted.
"The NIRVANA project is a particular interest. At the hotel one of our core values is to create things that never existed before, and this group of talented musicians are doing just that," Prateek added.
