MECA will present ​May Nasr and Lourdes Pérez, two remarkable singer-songwriters in a unique concert that bridges languages and cultures. Nasr and Pérez are considered musical icons and voices for peace in different worlds, oceans apart: May, from Lebanon; Lourdes, from Puerto Rico.

It was the sound of one song during the bombing of Lebanon in 2006 that sparked their unlikely connection. One of those devastating nights, a friend of May’s sent her “Te llamo,” Lourdes’ Spanish version of “Ounadikum” (I Call To You) by Lebanese songwriter Ahmad Kaboor. A song about survival and resilience, the song repeatedly provided May with a musical haven against the sound of shelling in the streets that night. The song had traveled the world, returning when most needed.
