Dhour Shweir Beer Festival for
Featuring: Haifa Wehbe, Joe Achkar, and George Harik ….
When night falls and the street lights of Dhour Shweir come to life, the
stage centered at the middle of the Seha shines expressing the exciting
mood of the performers and the presenters.
Decorating the streets and raising the spirits up high are the huge
posters and lights of restaurants giving rebirth to a new night to look
“Welcome to the Dhour Shweir Beer Festival of 2003” the crowd goes
willlllld! The people there can’t be counted as the buzz of laughter,
excitement, and happiness surround every single soul found standing on
the ground of the Seha.
Of course no performance starts without a presenter, which is Grace Raes
presenter from a local TV channel,New TV.
“Shou byimna3 shoufak 3ala toul? “ (What stops me from seeing you
always?) Sang the singer Joe Achkar as a start to his lively
performance. This man has the potential to make a crowd go loud whether
it’s the sound of the music that has the vibes of an electric guitar or
the hyperactivity compressed in his body. He performed a few more Arabic
songs including the type “Arabic rap” and ended his performance with his
latest song “Maza qalou?” (What did they say?) And then disappeared into
the crazy night.
An amazing performance from the comedian George Harik which caused
people to giggle and laugh. He acted like other Lebanese artists
lighting the mood of people. While a band played people started to
become anxious because the star of the night was about to arrive. As she
walked down the baladiehs stairs fireworks started exploding into the
dark night causing the level of hyperactivity to rise! The crowd became
loud and willllld! Haifa had arrived! The star of the night had shone
when she sang, “Agoul ahwak, titkaber, Agoul ansak, tiradiny!” (I say I
love you, you become proud I say I’ll forget you, you start to
apologize!) Everyone started to sing along. Dancers surrounded her
causing the level of action to rise including some of her own moves. She
sang a few songs including a slow song called “wahdy” (all alone) by the
end of the evening as Haifa left and everyone started to depart. I could
say that everyone left satisfied and this would be an evening planted in
their memory to be remembered….
