Lira graced the boards of the Dawar al-SHAMS auditorium Monday evening, the enticing rhythms of her performance marking the opening of this year's Spring Festival.This year's festival promises concerts, poetry readings, artist talks and plays by artists as far afield as Morocco, Egypt, Senegal, Norway and The Comoros Islands. Lira's concert will be followed Thursday by a performance by Mamela Nyamza. Another internationally renowned artist that the Spring Festival will introduce to Beirut is Comoros Islands' native Nawal, whose music draws upon local popular and spiritual traditions, interpreted through African and Arab instrumentation.The second part of the Spring Festival will be turned over to the freestanding event "REDZONE: Free the Arts" – an annual event created by Norway's Kirkelig Kulturverksted company, in partnership with the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign affairs.The Spring Festival winds down on 10 and 17 May with concerts featuring a pair of female pop singers from different parts of this region – veteran Iranian vocalist Mahsa Vahdat and up-and-coming Tunisian artist Badiaa Bouhrizi.The Spring Festival runs through May 26 at Dawwar al-SHAMS and continues on May 1 with Mamela Nyamza's dance piece "The Meal".
