Bonus Episode

The Creative Process

November 14th, 2022

A conversation with multi-disciplinary artist and violinist Haig Papazian and designer Jamal Saleh.

“In this bonus episode, host Kim Ghattas takes you behind the scenes of the creative process of the music and the logo of the show, the identity and diversity within both.”

“From the onset, Project Brazen and Kim wanted to showcase local talent from the Middle East. Many of you have told us you’ve been listening to the show’s music on a loop. Haig Papazian is the creative brains behind the original music for the podcast. He’s the violinist of the iconic indie rock band from Lebanon, Mashrou Leila, whose concerts electrified the region’s youth for years with its song about LGBTQ rights, political protests and freedom. Haig, a multi-disciplinary artist with a background in architecture, is now performing solo shows from NYC to LA. Jamal Saleh designed the logo and identity for People like Us. A graduate of the American University of Beirut, she’s the creative director and co-founder of one Megaphone, one of the most successful online news platforms in Lebanon, and has created and contributed to a number of logo designs and campaigns.”
