Biography

The Rahbani Brothers (Arabic: الأخوان رحباني) were Lebanese composers, musicians, songwriters, authors, playwrights/dramatists, philosophers and poets.

Assi Rahbani (Arabic: عاصي الرحباني) was born on May 4, 1923 (died on 21st June 1986), and Mansour Rahbani (Arabic: منصور الرحباني) in 1925.

They are known for their huge repertoire of works with the Lebanese diva Fairuz.

Assi was Fairuz’s husband from 1955 until his death. They are Ziad Rahbani’s parents, a prominent contemporary musician.

Assi was also an orchestra conductor.

Assi also co-starred with Fairuz in notable Lebanese movies from his own scenario and music along with Mansour: Safar Barlek (The Exile, 1967) and Bint El-Hares (The Guardian’s Daughter, 1968)

Biyya’ el Khawatem (The Ring Seller, 1965) film didn’t include Assi in the cast (though he and Mansour are credited for the scenario and music). Fairuz and Nasri Shamseddine were among the main cast.
