The open-air concert was completely sold out, with dedicated fans eager to see "The Best Of" Massi, as the show was tagged, boasting a program thick with fan-favorites and hits from her six albums.Made famous by her 1999 hit "Al-Raoui" (The Storyteller), Massi is known for blending music styles, from folk and classic rock to flamenco and classical Arabic – often singing in French, Arabic and Amazigh (aka "Berber"). Staged by Liban Jazz and Elefteriades, the concert saw Massi joined onstage by mandolin player Mehdi Dalil and percussionist Rabah Khalfa, both of whom gave fantastic solos throughout the evening. The seated, dressed-down evening reflected Massi's down-to-earth profile and simple approach to music, focusing on harmonies, catchy rhythms and meaningful lyrics.Massi was the most recent speaker at these "Talking Music" sessions, always held the day before the concert, allowing people to learn more about the artists and ask questions.
