Abaya Road is the latest of Zeid Hamdan's projects. This umpteenth musical formation allows this hyperactive producer to have fun with pop and dancing remixes of great classics from the Lebanese, Syrian and Arab repertoire in general. He is accompanied this time by two young singers, Jeanne Humbert (John), harp guitarist with a fragile and suave voice and Celine Khoury who with nuance and assurance handles the different techniques of Arabic singing. But it will also be no surprise if the group launches into some reinterpretations of the great classics taken from some 20 albums that Hamdan has to his credit and from his many titles that marked the Lebanese post-war generation.
Theater, dance, music, circus, visual and digital arts – in short, there’s a place for all the diversity of today’s art forms at Les Subs, and especially for aesthetic adventures that take audiences beyond their comfort zone. Exit the borders between visual arts and performing arts, the big stage and small theaters, indoors and outdoors, high-brow and low-brow, here and there. Open to the city and the world, Les Subs promotes regional as well as international talent, residencies and meet-up events, new technologies and accessibility for the many, a strong identity and partnerships.
