Jazz is universal and the way it defies boundaries in musical genres is fascinating.

BEIRUT SPEAKS JAZZ is a unique platform in the Arab world where Rock, Hip Hop, Tarab, Pop and Blues artists get united on one stage and in one night to perform with a jazz band.
So far we had 3 successful editions, 36 leading artists and more than 1200 engaged listeners.

Founded in 2013 by Tarek Yamani, BEIRUT SPEAKS JAZZ is not just a performance. It is a new concept and a unique platform to raise jazz awareness among the Lebanese crowd.
In one night, Lebanon's most intriguing artists of rock, rap, tarab, pop and blues all come together to explore new grounds with the encompassing sounds of jazz.

In its third edition, Beirut Speaks Jazz is proud to have had the following artists:

Aziza, Issa Ghandour, Wassim Bou Malham, Tania Saleh, Ziad Ahmadieh, Ranine Chaar, Poly, Chady Nashef, Rayess Bek, Edd Abbas, Tarek Yamani, Raffi Mandalian, Khaled Omran, Dani Shukri & Ruedi Felder.
