about



Traditional Lebanese music includes instruments such as the lute (oud) which has a warm timbre; the derbake, a hand-drum, usually conical or vase-shaped, which may be made of earthenware or metal; the Nay, which is capable of producing dynamic and tonal inflections; and the daff, generally a small tambourine often used alongside the tablah typically by the performers of sung folk-poetry (Zajal). Zaghloul Al Damour and Moussa Zgheib stand out among the well-known Lebanese zajjaleh.

The rhythm of the music is powerful and listeners are so involved emotionally that it makes them lose the sense of time. That feeling is called tarab. Singers who sing tarab include Wadih El Safi, Zaki Nasif, Sabah, Melhem Baraket and many others.

The most famous Lebanese singer is Fairuz, whose songs are broadcast on all radio stations and TV channels. Fairuz and the Rahbani Brothers gave the Lebanese music a new dimension. Nor must we forget the legend Ziad Rahbani the son of Fairuz and Assi Rahbani.

Some Lebanese artists such as Najwa Karam and Assi El Heleni remain devoted to the traditional music known as "Jabali" (from the mountains), while other artists integrate western style into their songs as do Majida El Roumi, Elissa, Nancy Ajram, Haifa Wehbe, Ragheb Alama, Wael Kfoury, Carole Samaha, Marwan Khoury, Amal Hijazi and Miryam Fares. Gassan Rahbani, Haks El Ser, Jad Choueiri and Ashekman are among the Lebanese artists who have turned to Lebanese rock or rap.

Contemporary Lebanese music is well known to mix oriental with European music.
