At a castle on the mountain in Lebanon Iraqi singer Kather Al Saher sang for Baghdad and Beirut during the “Beit Al Deen” festival. Fans started cheering him on because they were very happy to have musical concerts in Lebanon after two year of absence due to the crises that Lebanon went through.
For more than two hours Al Saher performed the best of his old and new songs and mainly sang songs that were written by the late Syrian poet Nizar Al Qabani. He also sang many songs from the Iraqi folklore like “Kabri Aqlik” “Hob”, “Al Mustabida” and more.
According to the London daily Elaph, Al Saher did not forget Lebanon, and wanted to show his dear admiration for Lebanon and the Lebanese people by singing the poem for the famous late poet Nizar Al Qabani about Beirut. There were exceeding number of fans who came to see Al Saher and the streets were packed with fans that were unable to get ticket, because they were sold out. The fans who weren’t able to enter tried to listen to Al Saher’s music from outside and Al Saher saluted the outside crowds and said that if he has a place to bring everyone in he would because his heart has a place for all of them.
The fans were cheering Al Saher very loud asking him to sing specific songs and many were holding the Iraqi flag and his pictures dancing to the beat of his music. The “Beit Al Deen Festival” will last till August 12th, where it will be hosting the famous Lebanese singer Majida Al Roumi on that day.
