I propose to start every new week with a song that takes us somewhere in the world.
Today I’ve selected a song that takes us to Beirut with trumpet jazz player Ibrahim Maalouf.
Ibrahim was born in Lebanon but grew up in France after his family fled the civil war. A classically trained and talented trumpet player, he was also awarded by UNESCO as an artist promoting the dialogue between the Arab and Western worlds.
Enjoy the velvety oriental sounds of his trumpet, and have a great week!
This post is part of a weekly event called The Monday Travel song. You can participate, too, by doing the following:
- Create your own post every Monday and title it The Monday travel song: xxx by xxx
- Include a link to a song (YouTube link or other)
- It must be a song which is linked to a geography. For example, a Russian song, a Chinese song, a Scottish song… (it can be from your own country every now and then, but remember the purpose is to get others to virtually travel!)
- Your post doesn’t have to be long, but do tell us a little bit about the song… for example by telling about the lyrics, about the composer, about the style…
- Include a link to my own Monday travel song in your post tag it “Monday-travel-song” so others can find it too
