Beirut’s Underground Music Scene

Here’s a trailer for a documentary project on the underground music scene in the Arab world, specifically Beirut. It’s very well made and offers some valuable insights into a scene that’s sadly still shunned by the mainstream, who prefer their stars lip-synched and surgically-enhanced. Like someone says in the video: “popstars sing dreams, we sing reality”.

Be sure to check out all the bands in the video like New Government, Scrambled Eggs and LUmi.
