Images of Bayreuth of 1991 and 1993 (scroll down for lyrics)


Concierto de Arenjuez / Li Beirut
Music from Joaquin Rodrigo sung by Firuz

All pictures are made by me, when we were in Lebanon just after the civil war had ended.
I walked from Furn-el Chebbak along the Rue de Damas until I reached Place des Martyres (also known as Place des Canon).
I made this walk twice and the second time Uncle William was with me. You might see him o his car on one or two of the pictures.
I fell in love with this city even as it was a ruin and I also fell in love with the music of Magida El Roumy and Fairouz
Bayreuth has been rebuilt since and I'm sure we will be back there one day...... some day

Lyrics Arabic
Li beirut,
Men qalbi salamon li beirut
Wa qubalon lil bahr wal bouyout

Kaannaha
Wajhou baaren qadeemi ...
Hiya men
Roui shabi khamron Hiya men
Araqihi khobzon wa yassamin
Fa kayfa sara tamouha
Tama naren wa doukhani
Li Beirut,
Majdon men ramaden Li Beirut,
Men damen li waladen Oumila fawqa yadiha
Atfaat madinati qendeelaha Aghlaqat babaha..
Asbaat fel masaa wadaha Wadaha wa laylou

Li beirut,
Men qalbi salamon li beirut
Wa qubalon lil bahr wal bouyout
Li sakhraten
Kaannaha
Wajhou baaren qadeemi
Anti li, anti li,
Ah aniqeeni anti li
Rayati wa ajarou el ghadi wa mawjou safaren
Azharat jiraou shabi azharat
Damatou el oummahat
Anti Beirut li, Anti li, Ah aneeqeeni....

Lyrics English ( iI hope this translation is correct...)

To Bayrouth

A greeting from my heart to Beirut
kisses to the sea and to the houses
to a rock, which is like an old sailors face
She is made from the peoples soul..from wine
She is from his sweata bread and Jasmins
So how does her taste become? A taste of fire and smoke

Glory from the ashes to Beirut
My city has turned out her lamp
From the blood of a child carried upon her hand
She shut her door, and became alone in the sky
Alone with the night
You are mine, you are mine
Ah Hug me you are mine
You are my flag, tomorrow stone
And a travels waves
The wounds of my people have blossomed
And mothers tear
You are mine, you are mine
Ah Hug me
