Marcel Khalife - Voyageur on DVD
This 2004 DVD features
32 live musical performances from a variety of Marcel Khalife's concerts in
locales around the world. Also included in this impressive best-of compilation
is a documentary on Khalife's life and music, and the DVD also features scene/song
selection and subtitles in Arabic, English and French. Voyageur (The Traveler)
is an apt description of Marcel Khalife's life and music. He has traveled countless
roads to countless cities, tearing down barriers between people and cultures.
Born in Lebanon, Khalife has found a worldwide audience eager to welcome and
applaud his rich musical repertoire - prominently featuring the beloved oud
(also known as the Near Eastern lute). In 1972, Khalife formed a group of musicians
in Amchit, the town where he was born. The group, which then performed throughout
Lebanon, wanted to revive Arabic music and its choral heritage. The Amchit group
was an experience of Khalife's that launched Al-Mayadine Ensemble in 1976, which
soon earned wide acclaim. He and the Al-Mayadine Ensemble continue to perform
concerts throughout the Arab world, Africa, Europe, the United States, Canada,
Latin America, Australia and Japan. In 1974, he began to write music for the
dance shows of the Caracalla Dance Troupe. The powerful combination of Marcel
Khalife's music and the dance troupe has given birth to a new style of Near
Eastern ballet with a popular appeal. He has also written soundtracks for documentaries
and films directed by Maroun Baghdadi, Sophi Sayhf Eddin and Sami Zikra.
