I asked some of my favorite musicians from Beirut and beyond, to tell me what their favorite records of 2011 were…

In the case of hip-hop artist Wael Kodeih aka Rayess Bek, he preferred to send me a list of the albums he listened to the most in 2011, regardless of date of release, and even took the time to include YouTube links! Here goes:
