Born in 1956, ZiadRahbani is a Lebanese composer, pianist, playwright, and political commentator. His compositions are well known throughout the Arab world. He was the most influential Lebanese artist during the civil war in Lebanon.
Many of his musicals satirize Lebanese politics both during and after the civil war, and are often strongly critical of the traditional political establishment.
Ziad Rahbani is the son of famed Lebanese composer, Assi Rahbani, and the famous Lebanese singer, Fayrouz.
Rahbani's first known artistic work was "Sadiqi Allah" (My Friend God), a collection of writings between the years 1967 and 1968. In 1973, at the age 17, Rahbani composed his first music piece for Fayrouz.
While Assi Rahbani was hospitalized, Fairouz had to play the leading role in "Al-Mahatta" by the Rahbani brothers. Mansour Rahbani, his uncle, who had written the lyrics of the song "Sa'alouni el Nass" (People Asked Me) about Assi Rahbani's forced absence, gave ZiadRahbani the task of composing its music. The song gained booming successin the music world.
