Sister Cities
Category: Music
Year: 2017
Status: Open

The “Sister Cities” project plans to revive traditional American big band music and traditional German music styles with a twist: new, socially relevant lyrics will be written and sung in Arabic, making these forms of music more accessible to Lebanese and pan-Arab audiences as well as exposing Western audiences to a new perspective on familiar musical styles. Against the current backdrop of migratory flows from East to West, “Sister Cities”, through concerts and album release, aims to connect one city in the West (Berlin) and another in the East (Beirut) via musical experience rooted in the Big Band repertoire.
