Guy Béart, real name Guy Béhar-Hasson,
was born on July 16, 1930 in Cairo. He spent his youth in
France, Greece, Mexico, Egypt and Lebanon. In Lebanon his
love for music increased so much so that he began studying
at the "École Nationale de Musique". He learned
how to play the violin and mandolin during his training. Moreover
he also studied tecnology and graduated as an engineer. He
started to write songs and to perfom in his free time. This
was in the 1950's.
Béart wrote many songs, more than 300. Songs which
are still enthusiastically bought by his fans. His most well
known songs are "Bal chez Temporel", "Il n'y
a plus d'après", "Poste restante", "Laura",
"L'Agent double", "L'Eau Vive", "L'Espérance
Folle", "Le Chapeau", "Les Couleurs du
Temps" and "À Amsterdam". He received
in 1994 a prize for his lifelong work from the French academy.
We wish to quote from his song ‘O Jehovah’.
