Ziad Rahbani to open Zouk Mikhael festivalWhile most of the upcoming summer festivals try to cram their rosters with heaps of talent, the Zouk Mikael International Festival seems to gravitate toward quality rather than quantity. One of Lebanon's best-known singer-songwriters, Ziad Rahbani will launch the festivities with his performance at Zouk Mikael's 2500-seat Roman amphitheater on July 23 .The legendary Egyptian vocalist's tunes will be brought to life by Yasmina, one of Egypt's rising young stars, as accompanied by an ensemble of Egyptian musicians.The 16-year-old Yasmina rose to celebrity when she made the finals of Arabs Got Talent – MBC's regional franchise of the successful America's Got Talent. Accompanying the young vocalist and her Egyptian accompanists will be the Lebanese National Oriental Orchestra, under the baton of the prominent Cairo-based Palestinian conductor Salim Sahab.
