Rahbani Summer Nights at Byblos International Festival


Lebanon’s musical royalty, the Rahbanis, gave us another magical performance last night at the historic port of Byblos as part of the ongoing summer Byblos International Festival. The Rahbani Summer Night at Byblos was presented by by Oussama and Ghadi Rahbani and included the best of the Rahbani family works from the rich repertoire of the Rahbani Brothers, Mansour Rahbani, as well as Elias, Marwan, Ghadi and Oussama Rahbani. The captivated audience enjoyed the songs and music performed by a constellation of Lebanese stars, as well as a full choir, and the National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine conducted by maestro Vladimir Sirenko. When the singing sensations Ghassan Saliba, Ronza, Hiba Tawaji, Simon Obeid, Nader Khoury and Elie Khayat took to the stage, the crowd was astounded and took a beautiful journey through the family’s legacy and their influence on Arabic music.
