Mashrou' Leila Perform Live in Beirut

On Thursday June 30th, 2011 I had the pleasure of finally attending a special live concert by Mahsrou' Leila, one of Lebanon's ultra hip bands whose music has revolutionized the Lebanese underground/alternative music scene. I had already bought and memorized their debut self-titled CD but nothing could have prepared me for the spectacular event which took place by the Mediterranean on a warm evening in Beirut.

Mashrou' Leila is made up of Haig Papazian, Carl Gerges, Omaya Malaeb, Andre Chedid, Firas Abou Fakher, Ibrahim Badr and Hamed Sinno, the amazing lyricist/main vocalist for the band whose vocal acrobatics, moves and energy have to be witnessed to be believed.

The band played several songs from their already released album (available on iTunes) and announced the upcoming launch of their latest EP titled 'Al-Hal Romancy.' They also just unveiled their brand new website at www.mashrouleila.com

Here is a short clip from the spectacular June 2011 concert in Beirut plus pictures of yours truly with the band and the audience.
