Part of an OZY original video series From Beirut, With Love.
Sandy Chamoun’s hypnotic tenor is known as one of the main voices of the bold, satirical, ISIS-mocking group Al-Rahel Al-Kabir. Now she’s creating different kinds of waves with electronic music that has echoes of several disparate cultural traditions.
Additional video and editing by Elie Khadra.
