CHRISTOPHE KATRIB aka CRISTOBAL // Ruptured Session // 22 Dec 2008

On Monday, December 22, Lebanese singer/songwriter CHRISTOPHE KATRIB aka CRISTOBAL performed some of his own compositions live in the studios of Radio Lebanon. This was an exclusive session for Radio Lebanon’s RUPTURES show, and the occasion to discover a truly outstanding young talent, who performs all too rarely.

(2008 end-of-year lists) – CHRISTOPHE KATRIB

I asked the main actors of this here blog (mostly musicians, of course, but also friends, family, support-givers…) to provide me with a list (5 to 20 albums) of their favorite records of the year.

The results are slowly coming in. There are surprises, resemblances, similarities, incongruous choices… I’ve left the responses intact, exactly as I received them, along with my friends’ comments. So here goes:

Christophe Katrib: DJ, musician (Cristobal), photographer

“Although I haven’t purchased all the music I would have wanted to this year, I will write a list based on what I’ve been able to listen to, in and out, up and down, a couple might be from 2007 though… here it goes:”

Bon Iver: For Emma, Forever ago
– Ratatat: LP3

Fleet Foxes: Fleet Foxes
– Passion Pit: Chunk of Change (EP)
Elbow: The seldom seen kid
– Yeasayer: All hour cymbals
Band of Horses: Cease to begin
The Helio Sequence: Keep your eyes ahead
TV on the Radio: dear science
Okkervil River: The Stand Ins
Destroyer: Trouble in Dreams
