It has been three weeks since the explosion took place and destroyed almost everything in its way. It caused tragic loss of life, property, and even morale.

Homes, offices, restaurants, businesses, cars, schools, hospitals, and even valuable belongings were either completely destroyed or lost among the rubble.

During these times, musicians that were affected in the blast might put on a brave face, and try to focus on fixing their homes before thinking about their gear.

But Tunefork Recording Studios, owned by musician/producer/engineer Fadi Tabbal, has taken it upon itself to raise funds to replace instruments and gear lost or totaled during the explosion.

After the tragic event, the studio reached out to musicians, producers, and sound engineers affected by the blast, and made an extensive list of all the gear that was destroyed. 

Tunefork has since launched the Beirut Musicians’ Fund, which aims to raise just short of $35,000 USD to support (at least) 21 musicians.

So far, the fund has raised $7,663 USD of its $34,935 USD goal.

In addition, musicians impacted by the event may fill the form to receive funds to help them through this difficult phase.

Music is an essential part of Lebanon’s culture that also needs saving, and awe-inspiring initiatives like this one fuel hope for a better tomorrow.

The961 Foundation is raising funds for the Lebanese Red Cross to help them in their response to this tragic incident. To donate, click here.
