Singer, composer and oud maestro Marcel Khalife restored the City of the Sun's meditative glory Friday evening, guiding his audience through a wistful roller coaster of emotions that was cinematic in its intensity and breadth.Often depicted as the "Bob Dylan of the Middle East," thanks to the leftist social commentary in some of his best-loved music, Khalife wasted little time reminding his audience that he was not a performer whose songs were meant to simply entertain.Khalife kept his eyes shut for most of the concert, letting the intensity of his voice and music speak for themselves.A true national icon, Khalife spun a concert that seemed able to unify Baalbeck's assortment of diverse individuals into an audience willfully surrendering to a collective musical prayer.
