BRUIT de BEYROUTH invites you to sample the diversity of the Beiruti
experimental sound scene.

Music has always played an important role within the Lebanese psyche
artists such as Fairuz and her son composer/playwright Ziad Rahbani
have become iconical carriers of national identity for Lebanese in
Lebanon or in the diaspora. Mixing folklore with politics or 
nostalgia, even during the 15 years of civil strife music accompanied
Lebanese, and has been a significant part of cultural
identity. Post-war Beirut as a city is now recovering  also
- from the devastations and horrors of civil war. A new generation of
musicians, who have all grown up during the war, is now coming of age
and experimenting with electronics and free improvisation. Firmly
rooted within the hustle and bustle of contemporary Beirut, their music
is fresh, attempts to rid itself from the burden and the luggage of the
past, and tries to look ahead: from the electronic manipulations and
drones of the Kitano Home Ensemble and Discipline, to the fragile
vocals of Mayaline Hage and the improv of Mazen Kerbaj.
