Electronic music workshop and performances with EMS (Sweden)
Irtijal will organize an electronic music workshop for Lebanese and Arab musicians, in collaboration with the renowned Elektron Musik Studion (EMS) in Sweden, and with support from Beirut & Beyond Music Festival and communication / networking platform Simsara, in Beirut in December 2016. The workshop’s participants will showcase their findings during the Irtijal Festival 2017.
Triangular Exchange -IRTIJAL FEST
The project is an attempt to bolster ties and relations between three major countries in the Arab world, through a collaborative synthesis between three close-minded festivals: Irtijal, 100Live and FEST. In their 2012 edition, each of these events will feature a special program highlighting this triangular exchange, with the aim that this will later involve other countries. The first year will encompass artists from Egypt, Lebanon and Tunisia who will perform, record and collaborate with each other in these countries.
