This collection represents the paradox that is Beirut and its beauty in Darkness
The modern world seems to be filled with worries and uncertainty. Chaos has installed itself in our daily lives. Changing the way we used to enjoy each other and the simple things. The beauty that surrounded us has been taken for granted and we are facing our truth. All those years taking advantage of the beauty and abundance in front of us, led us to greed, mistrust and egotistical behavior. But is complete order the answer? This collection voices the beauty of balance : what would the world be like if there was a perfect balance between order and chaos?
The people's symphony
This collection represents the power of unity and escape in music. When faced with unemployment, corruption of a government, division in politics, poverty, instability, people from different faith, culture and beliefs gather and unit in the rhythm of music. Music provides an escape to a generation throughout the globe especially in Lebanon. Trying to escape from their everyday struggles people unit in the beats of a song. In a time of revolution people from different background hold hands chanting for their rights.
