And of course, on top of this list comes one specific beloved Lebanese singer, Fairouz.

Fairouz is Lebanon’s past and present. While other Lebanese legends have stood the test of time, this singer is the most prominent of all, standing as an icon of Lebanon.

Her songs play on the radio every morning, thousands of ‘Sobhiyet’ happen on Beirut’s balconies with Fairouz playing in the background, and her voice is present in every Lebanese social, religious, and cultural event.

So when Lebanese people stumbled upon a video of an American street musician in Boston, Massachusetts, playing Fairouz’s undying song ‘Bektob Esmak Ya Habibi‘ on a saxophone, you can imagine their delight.

And ours!

Aimee Sayah, a Lebanese actress and TV host, shared the video on Twitter with the following caption: “I received this video… There’s no need for me to express what I felt when I heard it… Because you will feel it, too…”

This talented musician had a cardboard sign with countries’ flags on it, so we assume that he was playing songs that represent each country… and he chose the right one for Lebanon.
