Last October, an unprecedented team-up between Irtijal, Ruptured, Frequent Defect, The Ballroom Blitz, and Tunefork Studios yielded a day-long music marathon + fundraiser in Beirut, orchestrated by our friends Morphine Records in Berlin.

5 of these superb performances will be broadcast this coming Monday 25 January, starting 20.50 (EET) as part of CTM’s fully online 2021 edition.

Catch them via Ruptured and Irtijal’s Facebook pages or CTM Festival website.
