The 2019 edition of Lebanon's Global Week for Syria wrapped Thursday evening with an off-Hamra open-air concert, staged in a still-vacant lot at the corner of Rue Jeanne d'Arc and Sidani Street.Festival director Hannibal Saad had officially lowered the curtain on the third edition of Global Week for Syria when the band was pulled back to the stage for a last-minute coda with special guest vocalist Scarlet Mounzer, who belted out a silk-smooth low-intensity tune that, with Khuliki's encouagement, elided naturally into a few bars of The Verve's '90s classic, "Bitter Sweet Symphony".
