Mashrou' Leila performing at Baalbeck Festival 2012

Born of a nocturnal encounter at the American University of Beirut in 2008, Mashrou' Leila is a seven-member band that fuses the craft of a music workshop with the punch of stadium rock. With their distinct approach to storytelling and orchestration, they have composed some of the most melancholic ballads and raucous anthems in contemporary alternative Arabic music, and went on to perform them live at sold-out venues and high profile festivals all over Lebanon, the Middle East, and Europe. Their eponymous debut album and the 'El Hal Romacy' E.P. unfold like cinematographic fictions starring lovesick characters in desolate motels or wandering insomniacs in ghostly cities. At times quirky and playful, at others bitter and somber, the songs demonstrate the band's great versatility and sensitivity in dealing with musical form, lyrical narrative, and socio-political concerns.

Tickets: 50 000 L.L
