In this Live 2Famous.TV Radio Production from Radio Beirut we start off meeting young Lebanese/Canadian musician Moe Kabbara who is in town and plays for us.
Then we get to meet journalist Rami Aysha who has been working on cases that have gotten him trouble with the authorities. He was kidnapped by a military organization in South Beirut when working on a story about arms dealing and later handed over to the military who kept him for one month without pressing charges. He tells us about his case and how the situation for freedom of press is in Lebanon right now.
He is joined by Habib Batha from Beirutreport.com who also have been assaulted while working as a journalist.
Chady Abusleiman drops by and tells us about the Secret Walls Art Project happening also in Beirut these days!
Then, Edd Abbas of Fari2 Al Atrash, introduces us to his Latest Album, Tripnol.
The Show is Hosted by Matias Nordahl Carlsen and Allan from Lazzy Lung. It is a 2Famous.TV Production!
