Soon, Lebanon will be devoid of music…

…And now, consecutives crises have hit Lebanon’s music…

Musicians in Lebanon, like everyone else, are emigrating one by one… Some consider this a luxury sector, yet it is vital to the economy, culture, and way of life… Lebanon’s Rahbani is collapsing, theaters are deserted, and its songs are falling as mournful notes are sung on the funeral hymn… Joseph Keyrouz is a Lebanese musician who intends to stay in Lebanon… until further notice!

Joseph’s voice is suffocated by sadness. The visa has robbed Lebanon of its originality; art has no place in the land of money changers.

The music sector is just as essential as the food and pharmaceutical sectors. Save Lebanon’s music, which is collapsing gradually!
