Following a two year absence from the music scene, Ziad Rahbani returned to the stage Thursday night to open the 33rd edition of Beiteddine Art Festival.About half an hour into the concert, Rahbani insisted on playing the national anthem to a perplexed audience, traditionally coming at the beginning of a performance, but overlooked by the unconcerned pianist.Songs by Fayrouz were also featured in the program, such as the beautifully soothing "Ya Qamar Ala Daretna," sung by Samaan, and the upbeat track "Eshtatelak," which had the audience on their feet to dance and clap along.The second half of the concert oscillated between slow songs like "Ma Betfid," sung by Rain, and funkier tracks like the French vocals of "Un Verre Che Nous," which seemed to be a crowd favorite.
