BEIRUT MUSICIANS' FUND As you all know, our entire community is shaken by the horrific explosion at the port of Beirut on August 4th.  Reasons: the incompetence, negligence and corruption of our own government.  Countless lives lost. Countless houses destroyed. We are hurt, both physically and emotionally.  Fortunately, amid the chaos, everyone rushed to help. So, we took it upon ourselves to contact musicians, producers and sound engineers living in the blast area and to inventory all music gear, instruments and recording equipment that was destroyed. The damage, so far, adds up to USD 30,000 (the extensive list of damaged gear is available upon request). If you are an NGO, a fund or an individual interested in contributing, please DM us here or email us at If you are a working musician whose equipment was damaged from the blast, and we haven't contacted you yet, please DM or email us.  All donations will be managed by the studio and divided proportionally between those affected
