Ziad Rahbani

Joining us for his first London show in over 25 years is one of the undisputed icons of middle eastern 20th century music; the great Ziad Rahbani.

A maverick figure with who has never been too far from public controversy, Rahbani has nevertheless remained a key part of the Lebanese music scene at large thanks to his tireless piano playing and compositions that owe as much to classical music as they do to jazz (see cult favourite ‘Abu Ali‘).

Over the course of his long and storied career, Rahbani worked with his mother Fairuz, arguably the most influential singer in the Arab world, releasing eight albums in total with her.
