Imad Releases New Song “Makan” featuring Samia
- Beirut, Lebanon and London based music producer Imad released a new song “Makan”
The track was originally written as a submission for entry at Point Blank Music School in London, but was later rewritten with Beirut-Chicago based singer-songwriter Samia, following the devastating explosion in Beirut.
Imad said of the song, “That was a turning point for a lot of people in the country, as the general economic, social and quality of life in Lebanon had been rapidly declining. It was after that that we revisited it once more, dedicating it to the relationship a lot of us have with Lebanon.”
He continued, “I will always remember them, Whilst crying and yearning, Whenever I close my eyes, I see the same place. The past year living in Lebanon has been extremely tough, with constant blackouts, wifi crashes, fuel crisis, economic collapse, it was very challenging to keep productive and be inspired. But it's through these moments where you learn the most about yourself, your craft and appreciate the small things in life.”
Samia said, “This song narrates the story about being forced to leave home for a better life, and being torn apart from the feeling of having to leave or stay - something Imad and I have had to endure, and a lot of people from Lebanon.”
