A modern and virtual artifact, a musical evening to be watched, Love and Revenge is a tribute to the popular kitschy idols of an Arab world passionate in its dramas and melodramas. Presented in surprising and hybrid forms are the biggest success stories of the Middle East music scene: those of the Iraki Kadhem Saher, the Egyptian Souad Hosni, or the Lebanese Sabah.
We will encounter few renowned faces, from the golden era of the Cairo’s Studios Misr. We will get immersed into the musical comedies inspired by Hollywood, made fabulous by the queens of dance such as Samia Gamal or Tahia Carioca, and by singing idols such as Leila Mourad, Farid El Attrache, his sister Asmahan or the young Oum Kalthoum.
Love quarrels, attempts of redemption, dramas of abusive marriages and tragic destinies are constantly embodied in these films. However, the boldness, sincerity and fantasy imbedded in Egyptian cinema save it from the realm of the ridicule. It oozes a definite grace even in its strangest moments, like the one revealed in the Egyptio-viennese waltz-the highlight of Gharam wa Intiqam, Love and Revenge, the 1944 movie from which the title of the evening is inspired.
Rayess Bek's remixes and La Mirza's visuals are joined by the bass of Julien Perraudeau and the electric oud of Mehdi Haddab. Love and Revenge is an Arab electro-pop evening revisiting a timeless golden era.
