Festival starts in


“Ya Garat Al Wadi” is a popular piece of Egyptian music composed by the legendary Mohammad Abdel Wahab and written by the poet Ahmad Shawqi in 1928. More than 90 years later, this film documents an orchestra of 15 musicians, formed by the initiative of Radwan Ghazi Moumneh (of Jerusalem In My Heart), over the period of five days in Beirut to once again reinterpret this great classic of Arab music.
