Named UNESCO Artist for Peace in 2005, Lebanese composer, oud master and singer Marcel Khalifé is one of the world's leading Arab musicians. Performing his critically acclaimed new work "Taqasim" (Improvisations) as well as works from his old and new lyrical repertoire, Khalifé is accompanied by Rami Khalifé on piano, Peter Herbert on bass and Bachar Khalifé on percussion. In his association with great contemporary Arab poets, particularly Palestinian poet par excellence Mahmoud Darwish, Khalifé seeks to renew the character of the Arabic song, to break its stereotypes and to advance the culture of the society that surrounds it. On his journey, Marcel Khalifé invents and creates original music, a novel world of sounds, freed of all established rules. This language elevates him to the level of an ambassador of his own culture and to the vanguard of Near Eastern music innovators
