As a small tribute to Guy Béart, Lebanese at heart , who had loved Lebanon so much, and inspired by his song "Free Lebanon" , from this Saturday, we will take a short break with the usual infographics in images. From now on, we are going to embark on a musical tour, discovering Lebanon in another dimension, between notes, rhythms and words. It is normal that there is a myriad of songs of which Lebanon is the main subject, and that they are sung in Arabic or in Lebanese. But there is also a considerable number of French songs where Lebanon is evoked, sung, praised. Because if Lebanon is French-speaking, it is by choice, and its history only proves it, especially in the field of Letters and the Arts. Thus, it is normal that it is celebrated in the language of Molière, by French or French-speaking artists. But unfortunately, most of the songs were born in solidarity with a Lebanon at war; few can describe a prosperous country. We are going to start with a cult song from the sad years of the civil war, a moving song, which mobilized 75 French artists to release a 45 rpm record for the benefit of the children of Lebanon in 1989. A song written by Pierre Delanoë on music signed by Cyril Assous. We leave you with the music video and the lyrics of this song and we wish you a peaceful, musical and beautiful weekend.
