Two major world music artists are due to perform in the UAE over the next two weeks.

Music loving Brits planning on catching flights to Dubai over the coming weeks will be able to catch two major world music acts performing live in the Emirates region.

This Friday (April 29th) sees Colombian songstress Shakira performing at Yas Arena in Abu Dhabi as part of the Sun Comes Out Tour 2011.

The Hips Don’t Lie singer has sold over 50 million albums worldwide, and enjoyed particular success with Waka Waka, the official anthem of the 2010 Football World Cup.

If her performance is too short notice for your travel plans, then you can head to Dubai’s Chi Garden on May 6th instead to catch a show by Reggae legend Apache Indian.

Gig goers can expect to hear classic hits such as Boom Shak-A-Lak from the Brit Award nominated artist, who will be supported by DJ Shadow and DJ Blaze.

Tickets for the Apache Indian gig cost Dh100 (£16) each, although ladies can get in for free before midnight, while the Shakira gig costs Dh 250 a head.
