The cover of Toufic Farroukh's latest CD "Cinema Beirut"

Toufic Farroukh launches “Cinema Beirut”

01 Jul, 2011 

Paris-based Lebanese musician and 2009 AFAC grantee Toufic Farroukh recently returned to Beirut to launch his latest CD “Cinema Beirut,” which is a compilation, re-mix, and re-mastering of music from the Lebanese film soundtracks of the past few years. “One of the pioneers of Lebanon’s Oriental jazz, along with Ziad Rahbani and Rabih Abu Khalil, is Toufic Farroukh” writes the Daily Star’s Jim Quilty.

 

Quilty writes that “The sound of 'Cinema Beyrouth' is, thanks to Farroukh’s ensemble of French session players, completely different” explaining that it is “much more enclosed and organic than that of the older material.”
