Back for its fifth season, the Beirut and Beyond International Music Festival opens Thursday with a concert by Yasmine Hamdan. The event will stage 10 performances from around the world by both established and rising artists. Programmed by Egyptian indie musician Maurice Louca, the four-day festival combines performances with a professional program of talks at Dar El-Nimer for Arts and Culture.BBIMF is dedicated to promoting and supporting emerging musicians and new music projects in the region. BBIMF organizers decide which acts – whether involved in the performance or the professional program – will tour.BBIMF aims to provide artists with further tools for their creative and professional development, Arab said, so while staging performances is necessary, it's not sufficient.BBIMF runs from Dec. 7-10, with concerts at The Grand Factory and KED, Karantina, from 8:30 p.m. onward.
