Why did Ziad Rahbani's concert sell out at Zoul Mikael International Festival?

|

Some non-Lebanese may not be aware of the extent and reach of the Ziad Rahbani “cult”. You will find young people in Lebanon who can recite entire dialogues and songs by him. These are people who for every occasion and every episode in life can invoke an aphorism by Ziad. To be sure, Ziad was also (and remains) big for people of this generation. After all, he introduced a genre of satirical comedy that Lebanon did not know before.

During the early years of the civil war, Rahbani would introduce daily brief exchanges on the radio about the current situation in Lebanon. These were smart and hilarious commentaries about political developments at the time. Everyone used to eagerly await these daily sketches with no electricity and the sounds of bombs all around us.

Rahbani was a child prodigy. He composed music at an early age (his first song for Fairouz was “Sa’aluni al-Nas”) and wrote his first play, “Sahriye,” before the age of twenty. He grew up around the talents of his parents, but that is no guarantee for talent (his cousins, the sons of Mansour and son of Elias are an example).
