Jordan Aresenault

Interview with Beirut-based Montréal artist Sami Basbous.

Beirut-based Montréal artist Sami Basbous returned to live in his country of birth, where refugees make up half the population, in 2018.

Having lived away from Lebanon for over 35 years, the author and singer-songwriter has a special place in heart for displaced people. Basbous channels the passion and pain of his life-long odyssey in the 2019 memoir Heal the Boy (soon to be released internationally by Librairie Antoine Hachette). Queercorps veteran and Free Kick fan Jordan Arseneault interviewed Sami Basbous (https://samibasbous.bandcamp.com/) on May 2, 2020, via video-cam, to talk about homecoming, home-fleeing, homosexual rootlessness, the reprieve of writing in confinement, and about his new food security advocacy work. The outro song “Seventh Heaven” is from Sami’s forthcoming album, written and recorded in Montréal at a challenging and generative turning point on his global journey. https://www.lorientlejour.com/article/1166091/sami-basbous-transforme-les-affiches-de-rue-en-oeuvres-dart.html
