Awad Al-Roumi: No one has the right to distort the hymn “Ya Beirut”


With a smile full of irony, actress Magda El Roumi grabbed the phrase, “No, no, no, no,” which the organizers of the Army Day party chose to replace with the phrase “The revolution is born from the womb of sorrows.”

“There are literary and legal rights for the poet Nizar Qabbani, the writer of the song, and the composer Jamal Salameh,” the director of works of the artist, Roumi Awad Al-Roumi, told Voice of Beirut International.

Artist Magda and no one has the right to distort a song as a hymn that runs throughout the veins of all Lebanese. Al-Roumi indicated that from the letter of the syllable “You are not tired of the rich.”

Al-Roumi refused to go into the political Al-Zawareb, exploring until the case was filed against the organizers. In response to a question about being able to know the party that changed the passage, Awad said, “We did not know and we must know, no one replaces the original and glorified everyone, sang the revolution and the country and is greater than these trivialities.”
