‘Marcel Khalifé & Bachar Mar-Khalifé - Mahmoud, Marcel et moi’

26 Jan.'22

Very early in his career, the Arab singer and oud player Marcel Khalifé turned to the poems of his friend, the famous Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwich. In these texts exploring themes such as exile and resistance, the musician found a resonance, a source of inspiration dedicated to freedom. Exiled to Paris at the end of the 1980s, Khalifé continued his artistic and humanist path, surrounded by his wife Yolla and his sons Rami and Bachar, who follow in his footsteps. An accomplished musician, the singer and multi-instrumentalist Bachar Mar-Khalifé blends his cultural heritage with jazz and electronic influences. Together, father and sons will pay tribute the famous Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish with the help of some modern instruments.
