Metrophone presents “Nour El Houda”.

Why Metrophone?

Lebanese radio broadcasting stations have given up on offering to the world their musical archive – an archive of amazing talents and legendary names that haven’t been well acknowledged, appreciated nor promoted since the beginning even though they were produced by Lebanese stations. These stations chose to promote certain artists instead of others and especially during the 60s and the 70s, imposing on the Arab world some faces and voices while leaving behind other great talents that could have easily defined Lebanese music.
With the radio stations still refusing to spread the songs and the voices that we have yet to embrace and explore, the voices that complement Al Rahbani, Wadih Al Safi, Sabah and Zaki Nassif at times, it has become imperative for us to seek them out and complete the picture defining Lebanese Music.
And so, Metrophone was born by bringing back forgotten yet significant music archives, bringing back the art, the lyrics and the tunes, that had long been eclipsed, in order to revive the Lebanese musical history.

The shows began with a tribute performance to the great Wadad, followed by a tribute to the famous Duo Jamal & Taroub and another of the departed Samir Yazbek & Mona Maraachli. As for the month of November, Metrophone is happy to present a tribute performance of the great Nour El Houda.
