COVID-19 was a difficult time for us. Our creative community, who are essential to our hotels, suffered immensely.
Their livelihood was taken away. The stage, the place where they expressed themselves was taken away from them. Musical creatives had lost their ability to showcase the music they had created.
Now, the Arkaba is working to get them back into the performance arena. Thanks to Music Development Office SA who helped us with a grant to support live music acts, we're hosting weekly shows of local talent producing original music right through to the end of June.
As a hospitality group, live music culture is part of our culture.
Last week, we were fortunate enough to host Chelsea Manor, Larsen, Sports Car, Lickity Split at the Arkaba (pictured below).
We can't wait to host more.
