Beirut Speaks Jazz @ Metro Al-Madina

In celebration of International Jazz Day, the hard working folks at Metro Al-Madina have announced a free concert called 'BEIRUT SPEAKS JAZZ'.

I will miss this concert by one day (I'll be in Beirut on the 1st of May), so it would have been great to see all these superb artists again along with my friends who run the Metro.

Below is from their event page:

"Come experience the most versatile jazz event in Lebanon where an all-star lineup of rock, pop, rap, blues and tarab artists get together in one night and on one stage to perform arrangements of songs over the foundations of Jazz harmonies and rhythms.
