Mariam Fares returns home to Lebanon
Lebanese singer Mariam Fares is to return to her home in Lebanon after the war with Israel ended with her family, who had fled to escape the Israeli bomb strikes that caused so much damage and took so many lives.
According to the London based Elaph, Mariam had to leave Lebanon when the war broke out mainly due to the fact that her younger sister had a nervous breakdown as a result of bombing of extremely close places to where they live.
Before leaving Lebanon, Mariam revealed that she had agreed with a number of sponsors in Egypt to hold performances, which proceeds would go directly to the reconstruction of Lebanon.
On a different note, Mariam may accept the leading role in a new joint Lebanese - Egyptian film to be shot in Egypt, Lebanon, and Tunisia.
Before the war, Mariam was preparing to film two music videos for songs from her latest album under the direction of Wisam Samira,director of her most recent clip "Ha'lik Rahtak" (I Will Disturb your Peace) filmed in Paris.
Samira chose the crowded streets of Paris for the setting to give Mariam a romantic and natural appearance. The video features the French Gymnase Marie Bella, one of the oldest dance theaters in Paris dating back over 250 years.
"I Will Disturb your Peace" was written by Mariam's sister, Rula Fares, and was composed by Mohammad Raheem.
