The soothing sound of Abdel Halim Hafez's "Ahwak," played on violin, filled the Kempinski Hotel's lobby lounge last Wednesday evening, as part of the newly launched Concertini program.Wednesday's show, the first at a Lebanese Kempinski, featured young talents from the Keys'n Cords music academy performing a mix of Arabic and Western music on violin and piano.It was 15-year-old Yasmin Saddi who stole the show in the second half, with her smoky alto vocals and soft piano playing, performing covers of Amy Winehouse's "Back to Black," Sam Smith's "Lay Me Down" and Kodaline's "High Hopes".The concerts will be held on the first Wednesday of every month, with a new selection of aspiring artists from music schools in the local community set to performing each time.
