that breeze awakened something

نسمة هوى خفيفة
من سنين بعيدة
نسمة هوى غريبة
رنّت

Some things I’ve been doing | Music Talks at Onomatopoeia

I have recently started giving weekly music talks at this lovely place in Beirut called Onomatopoeia, (you can check their FB page https://www.facebook.com/onohub). 

“music talks, a weekly gathering curated by onomatopoeia – the music hub, that aims to simplify access to music information and culture through series of lectures. music talks foster the development of music knowledge at various levels, covering different genres and topics from classic to modern. hosted by a professional musician or lecturer, each gathering is topic oriented, presented with proper media, visuals material and instruments.”

I will be giving my 4th talk this coming Monday, February 24, at 8PM, and I’m super excited about it.
See you there!
