The “Live Achrafiehâ€ festival was launched back in 2010 and every edition since then has been drawing more crowds. The festival starts in the afternoon with a childrenâ€™s fair, filled with multicolor folkloric parade, games, face painting, animation, and endless childrens activities. Then as the sun sets down, Sassine Square transforms into a music festival.
The good thing about this festival is that it features famous singers, Najwa Karam this year, is very well organized and is open for all to attend.

I tried understanding the lyrics a bit to see if they are anyhow related to the video clip but I didn’t get a single word of what he’s saying. I must say though that it was cool seeing those huge waves pounding the Lebanese shores. The clip must have cost a lot but money is not really an issue when you are married to Yemeni president’s daughter.
International icon, the beloved French chanson entertainer Charles Aznavour will be performing on July 6 while British art rocker Chris de Burgh will be putting on his show on July 8. Tickets are already on sale at all Virgin Megastore outlets and Boueri Press. [Link]
I don’t like De Burgh much but Charles Aznavour, born as Shahnour Vaghenagi Aznavourian, is one of my favorite French singers. I was hesitant first to buy tickets because Aznavour is 87 years old, but after I read that he’s on a 21-concerts tour and he’s been praised for his latest performances, I am more excited now to go watch him probably one last time.
