A few weeks ago the Syrian Hip-Hop artist Assasi Nun Fuse passed by Radio Beiruts Open Mic Session and performed the song “Media Btekzob (the media is lying)” in the video above.
This Friday other members of The movement Bilad El-Sham will join him in an acoustic concert at Zakaria Pub in Hamra. Together, they play a fusion between Arabic Hip-Hop and Oriental music integrated with songs by old famous artists (Mohamed Abdul Wahab – Abdul Halim Hafez – Oum Kolthoum – Sayyed Makkawi – Mohamed Munir – Farid El-Atrash – Sabah Fakhri – Ghawar El-Tosheh… )
The upcoming show only costs 5,000 L.L. so you might even be able to afford to buy a copy of their first album “Clinic of Bilad El-Sham”.
Bilad El-Sham is a tribute to its founder, Khalid Arnaout aka (Big-K) from Damascus, who was tragically killed in 2010 after a Akon concert, and the members performing on Friday will be: Assasi Nun Fuse (Hip Hop Artist), Sam Ghannoum (Singer), Ashraf El-Chouli (Oud Player), Ayman Sleiman (Cajun Player).
