When Danielle Faour began her show, G’Day Habibi, with an unaccompanied Arabic pop song, I admit I feared the worst. I worried that this would be a show that not only was not for me, but was aggressively opposed to me.
How wrong I was! Faour’s show about growing up with a Lebanese father and anglo mother was an absolute riot, not unrelated to the fact that she had quite a few members of her family in the audience.
Sure some of the vocal manners need to be smoothed over, and Faour could stand to gain some experience in dealing with a rowdy audience, but this is a new voice with an exciting future in Melbourne’s cabaret scene, and I look forward to seeing what she does next.
