The story of an unconventional guy...
Jabal Amman never looked better on a sunny Friday with running spring days, Café Des Artiste on Rainbow Street is just about as fresh as a fresh new-baby room could get! The place invites the notion of a house warming brunch-party. The hippie-couple, the fidgeting waitress, the perfumed lesbians and the nerdy foreigners… all scream mid-town party with the sugar plum fairies! I eye Rami through the window as I walk by, and after weeks of pushing and rescheduling, we finally had the time to catch up. I find him funny, sitting down on the edge of the couch, lost in the menu… and closing to brunch time, I rush in! “I’m starving, and haven’t eaten yet’ he says ‘do they have good breakfast food?” I nod and tilt my head toward the menu searching along with him.
"Now, they appreciate what I do, but they don't take it as seriously as I do. They don't understand its' future"
Remember him, innovative much? Like a climate in a book, Rami has had a busy year, from reforming a new band of his own, working in a ‘real job’ to being a risible Youtube star, and then there’s the break-up of Jadal. A busy year indeed! The new frontier settles on an edge, and the pioneer boy returns, riding his dreams into a new talent-territory, Rami never fail to tassel through! While growing up, his family was the breezy kind, his father used to play opera music around the house. His family appreciated the kind of music that influenced him as a child and remained-still in his memory through his adult life. “My father is a great man. I never respected someone so much as I do for my father. I’d be playing with my lego while he has Pavarotti's record playing on the phonograph” Rami shares. “Now, they appreciate what I do, but they don’t take it as seriously as I do. They don’t understand its' future”.
