"Elefteriades" is a leading company
in production and organization of musical events since 1977, but
also a family name easily recognizable in the Middle-Eastern and
international showbiz worlds.
Andéas Eleftériades started the family saga in 1977 with "La
Macumba." Previously, young Andréas was studying engineering
in France, but found himself irresistibly attracted to the music
scene. He played guitar and sang with various European groups. Back
in Lebanon, he brought together his "friends," very well
known stars, to perform in "La Macumba." His activities
expanded after the war to officially become the "Eleftériades
Productions" of today.
The second generation of the family has followed in the footsteps
of Andreas, but gone through formal studies and training to reach
a high degree of professionalism.
Michel, the eldest, has a degree in Fine Arts from France and a
diploma in Advertising. He has extensively trained in Europe, and
held several jobs with various theatre companies including programmer,
artistic director, scenarist… He has written songs for international
stars and recorded a first album.
Since 1997, Michel has established two recording studios and his
own editing and production company. He has to date produced 8 albums,
3 of which have topped the Best Seller charts in Lebanon.
Since 1999, an in-house department distributes the albums produced
Jean, the younger brother, has a degree in Architecture. He is specialized
in scenography and has a passion for audiovisual and lighting design.
