Irtijal, the International Festival for Experimental music in Lebanon starts tonight!
If you’re into experimental-free-improv-jazz-electro music, this is definitely the most exciting festival around and an event not to miss. In it’s 16th year, this Festival has proven to be a solid reference in showcasing new and innovative music and a great incubator for the avant-garde. This year will also spotlight Germany’s vibrant experimental music scene. Many lebanese musicians perform regularly in Germany and two of Irtijal’s pillars Mazen Kerbaj and Raed Yassin are both in Germany as artists-in-residence this year.
This event shows how unique, open and edgy the music scene is in Lebanon. See you there.
