Last night was the first public performance of my latest album Njoum, at Wickerpark festival in Batroun, Lebanon. Revealing the gorgeous cover by Joseph Kai.
Cheers to the “dream” team that helped me pull this off.
Fadi Tabbal, for his precious collaboration in arranging, recording, mixing, and performing
Joseph Kai, for translating my music into beautiful illustrations and a breathtaking album cover (and for loving my weird ideas)
Joe Elias and Rana Rmeily, for the endless hours of animation and VJ-ing because they want to do it “kermeil yo”
Sarah Chehab, for handling the nightmarish logistics with the most “baroness” of attitudes
Rachel Tabet, for capturing it all in beautiful pictures, delicious cookies and soothing smiles
Nada Saba, for her generosity and care for her little sister :)
Jennifer Haddad, Adel Minkara and Rami Tannous for their precious time and help
and everyone who believed, supported and listened.
The album will be available in stores very soon.
A great addition to my trip to Rome was a gig at a lovely record store in Pigneto area: Blutopia. I performed with Mike Cooper and Luca Venitucci a set of improvised tracks inspired from my new album (to be released very very soon). :)
And here’s a glimpse of what I saw, felt and experienced in Rome and Civita de Bagnoregio.
