Lebanese musician, producer and engineer Fadi Tabbal has established a fund to aid in the replacement of musical instruments and equipment destroyed on August 4th in the massive explosion in Beirut. The ‘Beirut Musicians’ Fund’ has the modest aim of raising $34,935. Beirut’s port, the site of the explosion, is central to Lebanese capital is is adjacent to their downtown, residences, and businesses. Consequently, in addition to the loss of life, property damages have been enormous and paralyzing. Of course, this includes the equipment which is the livelihoods of musicians and producers.

All donations will be disbursed by Tabbal’s Tunefork Studios and split amongst the many musicians affected by the explosion. A specific list of damaged equipment is available on request from Tunefork. Find details on how to donate here.

صندوق بيروت للموسيقيين

كما لا يغيب عنكم، لقد اهتزّ مجتمعنا بكامله جرّاء الانفجار المروّع الذي دمّر مرفأ بيروت في الرابع من آب/أغسطس الماضي. وتكمن أسباب هذا الانفجار في عدم كفاءة حكومتنا وإهمالها وفسادها. زُهقت أرواح كثيرة. ودُمّر عدد لا يُحصى من المنازل. لقد تضرّرنا جسديّاً وتلوّعنا.ولحسن الحظ، هرع الجميع لتقديم المساعدة في خضمّ هذه الفوضى. لذا، أخذنا على عاتقنا مهمة الاتصال بموسيقيين ومنتجين ومهندسين صوتيين يعيشون في منطقة الانفجار وجَرْد كل ما تدمّر من معدّات وآلات موسيقية وأجهزة للتسجيل. وتصل قيمة الأضرار حتى الساعة إلى حوالي 35,000 دولار أمريكي. القائمة شاملة بالمعدّات المتضررة متوفرة عند الطلب

.سيقوم الاستوديو بإدارة كل التبرّعات وتوزيعها بشكل متناسب على كل المتأثّرين.
