Lebanese Artists Team Up In A Cyber Music Festival To Help Lebanon

@musicasawa2020

During tough times, it’s hard to remember that Lebanon is a country of creativity, talent, art, beauty, and more.

However, Lebanon has long been known for its influential touch on the creative world regionally and internationally, namely in the worlds of fashion, beauty, and music. 

This is something we must not lose sight of.

Now, Lebanese people are using the power of music to help alleviate the economic crisis in Lebanon.

Musica Sawa

Organized by Amitiés Neuilly Liban, Musica Sawa (‘Music Together’) is a musical initiative tackling food vulnerability and providing education relief.

It is a month-long “cyber music festival” that has been featuring virtual concerts from one Lebanese artist a day.

Musica Sawa has hosted well-known artists and bands such as:

And the impressive list goes on and on.

The beauty in all this is that these artists are performing pro-bono, totally free, in order to help those who are finding themselves with no other choice but to rely on NGOs to survive.

A Lebanon built on love

Musica Sawa promotes both culture and humanitarianism. Its musical initiative has now raised funds to directly support two nonprofits: Beit El-Baraka and St. Vincent de Paul. 

But they’re only halfway to their goal of raising €100,000 and have a couple of days left.

If you’ve been wondering how to support Lebanon, this is a fantastic option. You can donate here.

Our beautiful Lebanon is going through some of its toughest times since the civil war. Arguably, the current financial situation is even more threatening than during times of war. 

Poverty and unemployment are on the rise with no foreseeable solution, and the economic crisis is slowly eating away at Lebanon’s middle class and crashing the poor. 

But seeing Lebanese people come together to help one another when the government won’t “help itself” is truly a breath of fresh air. All we have is each other.
