Far more earth-shattering questions circulate than who invented barbecue sauce. However, when your world is rocked, rather literally and practically daily, by terrorist attacks and political crises as is the case for Lebanese band Who Killed Bruce Lee, you might find refuge in topics more mundane than the ever-present Arab-Israeli conflict and civil war in neighboring Syria. You might, for instance, think about barbecue sauce.
Twenty-eight year old Wassim Bou Malham loves barbecue and all things grilling. When not busy creating songs with his three Lebanese band mates, his mind often wanders that way. Call it his coping mechanism.
Right now though, the four men are about to set out on a new adventure. Last year, to their great surprise, they won a Beirut talent show called „Red Bull Sound Clash”. „These really professional industry people approached us and told us we have a special thing going, and that we have a real chance of becoming successful one day,” recounts guitarrist Wassim. The encouragement, something tough to come by for young musicians in Lebanon, was just what the band needed.
