Beirut is back on the map. For some years now, this former Financial Times headline is proudly emblazoned on a poster, which you happen to pass by when taking a stroll by the sea in Beirut. Construction work is going on always and everywhere, while more and more tourists from all over the world come and rediscover the spry Lebanese capital. At any time of the day or night, the former Paris of the Middle East ist vibrating and alive. Over the past years a remarkable alternative scene has developed, that has no need to hide itself, neither musically nor technically. A scene reflecting what Beirut has always been: a multilayered cosmos where East meets West, where Occident becomes Orient. Arabian melodies and voice lines blend easliy with rock, jazz and electric beats. Singer-songwriters play the guitar and the piano just as expertly as their traditional instruments like oud or violin. The compilation RADIO BEIRUT proudly presents some of the best-known names from a new generation of musicians, that is now ready for the world-market â' Beirut is back!
