Late Lebanese singer, songwriter, composer and actor Wadih El Safi was hailed in a performance at the Beirut Waterfront Tuesday, in a tribute concert organized as part of Beirut Holidays."Lebaneseness" was thus allowed to become a central theme of the chosen program and was reflected in the selection of songs, which were mostly Safi's better known tracks, familiar to audiences from years of radio play.Many chose to sing and dance along with Safi's more famous numbers.In the end it was Hani, dressed in a blue sequined dress, who stole the show, thanks to her powerful voice and onstage poise. She also augmented her renditions of Safi's repertoire with a song of her own, "Ya Leil". While the music was not up to the caliber of Safi's own performances, the concert was ultimately held together by the maestro Alya, who appeared more attuned to Safi's music than any of the performers.
