Rami Khalifé's LOST, Return to Beirut

Considered "a musician of extreme caliber and pure expression" by the Daily Star UK, the adventurous Lebanese pianist Rami Khalifé presents work that is as eclectic as it is bold, ranging from improvised concerts, original film soundtracks, reimagined electronic club music with his AUFGANG project, and live tours with his father, the famed composer and oud player Marcel Khalifé. Rami's musical perambulations have led him to classical training at Juilliard; solos with Globalis Orchestra, the Qatar Philharmonic, the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, and The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia; live performances at the Kennedy Center, the Sydney Opera House, and Queen Elizabeth Hall; and over a half dozen albums. As part of the Festival of Firsts, Khalifé will premiere his latest work, LOST, Return to Beirut, at the David Rubenstein Atrium.

The return of Rami Khalifé to his homeland, Lebanon, is a rediscovery of his country that he painfully left as a child because of the war, a scar of the exodus that has never healed. Return to Beirut is the work of painter, photographer, and director François Rousseau and augmented by the photography of Lebanese war photojournalist Jamal Saidi.
