Called for well over half a century the "Voice of Lebanon," Wadi Al-Safi is considered that country's most influential singer and composer. Best-known for his interpretations of "mawwals", and for the over 3000 songs he has composed, he has brought his music to enthusiastic audiences, both in Lebanon and abroad, focusing attention on the folk music of his homeland, performing poetry and Zajal to inspire patriotism, love, devotion, and honor.

In tonight's concert, yet another mesmerizing voice of Lebanon, Naji Youssef, using his agile, melifluous baritone, honors the great master in a concert of some of his most beloved songs and mawwals, joined by an ensemble of master musicians.
