BIOGRAPHY

REVIEWS

"RAND is capable of taking the listener to wider spaces of aesthetic poetry, melody and performance, through a creation that imposes itself not by brainwashing marketing strategies or by excessive production support, but by its sensitive artistic and refined sense."  

Rana Astih, Al Joumhouria Newspaper

"RAND has a professional and decent look, heralding the birth of a Lebanese-inspired art troupe with an international culture. In this evening, not only the tunes were the master of the atmosphere, but also the artistic value that this trio excelled in transmitting through their vision."  

May Menassa, Annahar Newspaper

"RAND, Musicians promoters of  “Lebanese Human Resources”, a family-based group that has taken up the challenge of transmitting the essence and singularity of the music of The Land of Cedars." 

Anaïs Delmas, L’Orient Le Jour
