Music Day in the Park - Amman

FRIDAY, 21 June 2019
Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts Park

Let's celebrate Music Day (aka Fête de la musique) in a French style. The Institut français de Jordanie is organizing an open air, FREE summer concert. Discover the talents of a new generation of Jordanians bands before moving on the beats of the amazing Franco Lebanese Rayess Bek & La Mirza.

6 PM – Beit Al -Ruwwad band: proposed by Great Amman municipality
7 PM – Ertidad - إرتداد Alternative Arabic Rock from the Heart of Jordan
8 PM – Luay Hijazeen لؤي حجازين
9 PM – Love and Revenge - Rayess Bek: an Arab electro-pop evening revisiting a timeless golden era.

Rayess Bek's remixes and La Mirza's visuals are joined by the bass of Julien Perraudeau and the electric oud of Mehdi Haddab.
A modern and virtual artifact, a musical evening to be watched, “Love & Revenge” is a tribute to the popular kitschy idols of an Arab world passionate in its dramas and melodramas. Presented in surprising and hybrid forms are the biggest success stories of the Middle East singing scene: those of the Iraki Kadhem Saher, the Egyptian Souad Hosni, or the Lebanese Sabah. As we travel through the musical extracts remixed by La Mirza, we will encounter few renowned faces, from the golden era of the Cairo’s Studios Misr ( Samia Gamal or Tahia Carioca) and by singing idols such as Leila Mourad, Farid El Attrache, his sister Asmahan or the young Oum Kalthoum.
