About “Feel Notes”


Who?: Omar Al Fil, a Beiruti, enjoys local alternative music, and often yammers on pointlessly on things. Not the most qualified, but the incompetent Mr. Serge Yared urged him to do it. He liked Mr. Ziad Nawfal’s online work. And as luck would have it, he wasn’t as bad as expected.

Why?: Because the Lebanese alternative music scene is just as equal a musical playing field worth documentation as any other. It is genuinely diverse and unique and deserves merit. Also, it is fairly young, so the time to take baby-photos is now, so that we can cherish them later on.

…And?: So that those residing in Lebanon, and even those who aren’t, whom are oblivious to these activities and phenomena, can discover something of interest and learn to appreciate different things. Punk-ass kids don’t know shit about SoapKills…

How… to contact?: www.omar-fil@hotmail.com.

Where… else could I go?: This Facebook page, that’s where.

  10. I also got started on lebanese music (alternative or no) by mashrou3 leila… as a US person, it’s nice to be able to check out really cool, new music. (also, thanks for the translation of the lyrics!) this is offically too long of a comment.
