Live Drawing Concert #2

Special Program

Live Drawing Concert #2

In the framework of TERDAD 2021

Sunday 4 July, 22:30 to 23:30

This event navigates the relationship between the two time-based practices of music and drawing. It is through the lens of this live mixed media event, that assorted disciplines, perception and the senses meet each other to expand the boundaries of performance, this is a show about a conversation.

In collaboration with Samandal, Irtijal has selected four musicians to accompany the live drawings of Samandal’s artists and illustrators as they draw live in front of the public.


Jad Atoui: electro-acoustics
Aya Metwalli: vocals, synthesizers
Nadia Daou: vocals, electric guitar
Anthony Sahyoun: electric guitar, electronics


Ghadi Ghosn
Carla Habib
Lena Merhej
Carla Aouad
Shakeeb Abu Hamdan

The Live Drawing Concert #2 is taking place on the Sursock Museum esplanade.
