Elias Rahbani Says Lebanese Music at an All-Time low, Writes Songs for Myriam Klink

I admire Elias el Rahbani as a composer and an artist and I’ve been to two of his concerts however I don’t think he should be complaining about how bad Lebanese music is these days when he’s giving songs for Haifa and Myriam Klink.

Needless to say, he’s free to do whatever he wants and he can give Rola Yammout songs for all I care but he’s definitely not bringing back Lebanon’s glory days by working with such artists.

There are No Streets Named After Fairouz or Saba7 in Lebanon

An article published on Raseef22 was discussing the lack of streets named after artists in the Arab world and pointed out that there are no streets named after Fairouz in Lebanon, or Saba7 for that sake.

The Rahbani brothers have a street named after them in Antelias, Said Akl got his own street finally two years ago, Samira Toufic as well this year but there are still no Fairouz or Saba7 streets in Lebanon, even though that’s the least the authorities should do to honor them and plenty of other artists.

What Happened at Avicii’s Concert Yesterday?

avicii

I had two regular tickets to Avicii’s concert yesterday but I couldn’t go so I gave them to a friend who was grateful at first but was furious this morning when I called him to see how the concert went. Apparently, the concert, the setup, the sound and video effects and Avicii were great but the organization was very bad whereas he had to wait for more than 2 hours before getting in. He told me some people just threw away their tickets and left. I noticed a lot of angry comments on the Facebook event’s page as well.

I don’t know why people had to wait for so long but from what I’ve heard, the entrance to the regular & teen sections was narrow so people were literally squished there while VIP ticket holders got the huge Biel entrance. Add to that never-ending security checks, Saturday night traffic and people not respecting the queues.

In all cases, someone owes these fans an explanation but I’m glad I didn’t go last night.

British Singer Seal Sheds Light On Local Talent During His Beirut Visit

seal Original Story via Stepfeed

British Soul and R&B singer Seal was visiting Beirut and held a great, but sort of short, concert on Thursday at the Beiteddine Festival. During his stay, Seal dropped by Beirut Souks where he discovered an aspiring and talented young Lebanese musician called Peter Chouchani and decided to perform with him and share the duet on his Facebook page.

To be honest, I’ve never heard of Peter Chouchani before but I’ve googled a couple of his songs and he’s clearly passionate about music and has a great voice. This is an amazing opportunity for him and I hope the exposure that he got will help him become as popular as Seal. After all, that’s how Seal was discovered and look where he is now.

Here’s the video:

And I found this cover by Peter:

Americans React To Lebanese Singers

Watch Americans react to the instagram accounts of Nancy Ajram, Myriam Fares, Elissa, Najwa Karam, and Yara. Everyone liked Nancy Ajram, the guys thought Mariam Fares was super hot (she is) and wanted to DM her, Elissa was nicknamed the Madonna of Lebanon (huh?) and all were shocked that Najwa Karam is 50 years old.

If they wanted priceless reactions, they should have included Haifa Wehbe or Miriam Klink maybe.
