The rebirth: october concerts in Beirut


Two concerts featuring improvised music will take place in Beirut this october.
This is very special news to me since they are the first ones since the "july war". In a way it is the rebirth of the Lebanese improv scene in Lebanon after it was forced to shut down on july 14 when we had to cancel a Moukhtabar Ensemble + Ricardo Arias & Stéphane Rives concert.

Here is the basic info:

Saturday October 14th, 2006
Espace SD - Gemayzeh, Beyrouth (01 563114)
HABER / KERBAJ / YASSIN

Charbel Haber : guitar
Mazen Kerbaj : trumpet
Raed Yassin : double-bass

--

Wednesday October 18th, 2006
Théâtre Monnot - Beyrouth (01 202422)
GRENDIZER TRIO plays with JULY'S WAR

Mazen Kerbaj : trumpet, amplifications, objects, recorded sounds
Raed Yassin : double-bass, radio, tapes, laptop

Extended thanks to Charbel, Mazen & Raed for making this happen.
