The Beirut & Beyond Music Festival got started Thursday evening with a concert by Egyptian musician and composer Maurice Louca.The concert followed the official announcement of the lineup for the 2016 festival, which is scheduled to be staged at various venues around Beirut Dec. 8-11 .It seems that Beirut & Beyond is determined to invigorate the independent Middle Eastern music scene while luring in international influence. There seems to be a theme guiding the festival's selected acts – many of whom combine genres to create music that could be classified as "out of the box".Returning to the theme of electronic Middle Eastern music, Los Angeles-based Armenian-American DJ, music producer and composer Bei Ru will perform his own fusion of Middle Eastern music, electronic beats and percussion.
