My CD Review: Mashrou' Leila - Raasuk "رقّصوك"



The much anticipated third CD by the Lebanese group Mashrou' Leila is an instant masterpiece that solidifies the band's standing as the Arab world's leading indie/alternative musical artists. This CD combines the distinct sound of the violin with different rhythms and instruments while showcasing the powerful vocals of lead singer Hamed Sinno. The lyrics in Arabic are as poetic as they are contemporary. Tracks melt into each other like inter-connected chapters within a literary epic.

1. Prologue (1:21) Instrumental piece featuring Swiss/French trumpeter Erik Truffaz that eloquently and elegantly sets up our musical journey through the tracks that will follow.
**2. Abdo (3:18) is a popular, folkloric, fictional name in Arabic that is equivalent to "Joe Shmoe" in American English. Here our 'aging counter-hero' is in love with a widow who won't return his affections, leading to Abdo's heartbreak--a story that is accentuated by the song's deliberately melodramatic violin strings and music that stays with the listener long after the song--and Abdo--are gone..
3. Ala Babu (4:37) [At His Door] Sultry tune, a plea by a rejected lover in which he is willing to demean himself for love.
4. Taxi (2:45) Upbeat tune that sounds like Polish or Russian music mixed with various genres and contrasted by powerful lyrics in which the taxi ride is equated with one's doomed life journey..
5. Skandar Maalouf (4:01) Vocals in this song sound like Mika if he were to sing in Arabic. Song showcases Sinno's vocal ability to carry a song in upper registers. Just who is Skander Maalouf? Speculations abound.
**6. Lil Watan (3:36) [For the Homeland] Strongest track on this CD, mid tempo, addressing patriotism, nationalistic slogans and conspiracy theories.
7. Bishuf (4:34) [He Sees] Slow, rhythmic beats that sound like a funeral procession. Lyrics about depression, consciousness, sadness and resignation. Haig Papazian's violin is haunting.
**8. Ma Tetrikni Heik (2:26) [Don't Leave Me Like This] The Lebanese version of Jacques Brel's ‘Ne me quitte pas' with organ music and Sinno's vocals crying out in pain and desperation. Sounds almost like a Church prayer or lamentation.
9. Raasuk (4:02) [They Made You Dance] Title track begins with a grave tone but picks up as song progresses. Like track #6, this song talks about notions of nationalism and choosing to 'dance' like a puppet.
10.Wa Nueid (5:06) [Ad Nauseam] Redundant clapping sounds define this track which emphasizes individual choices and capabilities. Less pessimistic than tracks 6 and 9.
11.Bahr (3:27) [Sea] Epic-like track showcases breathtaking trumpet playing by Erik Truffaz with lyrics that lament the death of a brother who has disappeared into the sea. A plea for the sea to return him.
** My faves (2, 6, 8)

Message from Mashrou' Leila in Support of their upcoming album 'Raasuk'


The following is taken from To support Mashrou' Leila: http://www.zoomaal.com/projects/mashr...
Raasuk: You've Been Choreographed.  For arabic version of the text, please go to
http://www.zoomaal.com/projects/mashr...

MESSAGE FROM THE BAND:  http://youtu.be/WU2caaG4CBU



We are Mashrou' Leila, a Beirut-based indie band. You can check out some of our music on www.mashrou3leila.com.

We got together back in 2008, and we've managed to make it through the last 5 years, getting more and more involved and obsessive about our craft, because of the continued support of our friends, fans, and supporters.

We spent the last two years meticulously writing our third album. That's the longest time we've spent writing, because we wanted to create something superior to anything we've released before. While writing, we gigged all over, trying to raise funds for the recording. Then when we finally hit our budget, we flew all the way to Montreal, to record the album in one of the best studios in the world.

And we think it sounds amazing.

The album is about everything: love, lust, mourning, social control, Lebanese politics, the Arab spring, and most importantly, dancing. We challenged ourselves musically and lyrically to try to get out of our genre. We recorded in optimal conditions, and rearranged our compositions over and over again till we had we thought was good enough for our incredible supporters.

Although the worsening political situation in the Middle East makes it increasingly difficult to get our stuff published, we really want to get this album out. If for nothing else, we want to release the album to prove to ourselves and everyone around us, that at least part of all the changes in the region are in the name of free speech, be that in a protest, a censored newspaper article, or a concert that the government won't support. We want this to be the biggest independent music release the Arab world has seen.

That means designing beautiful album art, printing CDs, posters, flyers, making quality video clips, and playing concerts with quality sound systems, etc.

But all of that costs a lot of money, and that's where ZOOMAAL comes in.

Mashrou' Leila & ZOOMAAL

ZOOMAAL is the first crowd-funding platform looking to help the ambitions of independent talent in the Arab world. Like us, ZOOMAAL is fed up of the paralyzing slow support formally offered to Arab artists, especially the ones that don't fit into conservative moulds. And we are their first project. So they're turning to the most effective means for help: YOU.

Down With The Choreographer

This is where you guys come in. We're going to need at least 66,000$ to make it happen, although the more money we raise, the more cities we can visit, the more elaborate our videos can be, and the more music we can spread.

But since there is no real money or support in the Middle East for independent artists or musicians without boob jobs, we are asking you to help fund our third album.

Help us prove that the music industry hasn't been catering to our people's needs. Help us demand that the music industry stop remanufacturing the same pop-stars with different names.
Help us demand better art.
Help us demand diverse representation in our cultural environment.
Help us force the industry to listen to the people.
Help us not get choreographed.
Help us occupy Arab-Pop.
#OCCUPYARABPOP

Tell your friends, tell your family, tell your lovers. Tell the fanatics, the moderates, and the liberals. And when you do, make sure you also tell them change is coming, and it doesn't have implants.

Other Ways You Can Help

Any and all contributions matter. Even the smallest of contributions will help us hit our target. If you simply can't donate, then spread the word. Share this on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and whatever other social media platforms you're using.

Here is the track 'Lil Watan' from the upcoming album: http://youtu.be/jHgbuqqbBSk


Here is Mashrou' Leila's 'Ma Titrikni Haeyk/Sawsan (the Lebanese version of 'Ne Me Quitte Pas'), a song that is included on their 'Live in Baalbek' DVD. This video has the lyrics in Arabic too: http://youtu.be/zrF7t057yA4

Bassem Youssef Hosts 'Controversial' Lebanese Band Mashrou' Leila

Bassem Youssef  (3rd from left) with Mashrou' Leila band members

Bassem Youssef, aka 'Egypt's Jon Stewart' recently sparked more controversy in Egypt after hosting Lebanese band Mashrou' Leila whose music has redefined alternative Arabic music and whose poignant video clips do not shy away from tackling various social and political issues that are so often ignored or dismissed in mainstream Arabic songs.

Youssef, who has since been accused of insulting religion by Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood, hosted  مشروع ليلى Mashrou' Leila during the season finale of his TV show albernameg.  Mashrou' Leila is a seven-piece alternative rock band from Beirut which has won countless fans throughout the Middle East since forming in 2008. Its frank treatment of taboo subjects such as sexuality and religion has drawn criticism and applause due (among other things) to the fact that the band's lead singer Hamed Sinno is openly gay (see http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/04/25/bassem-youssef-mashrou-leila-_n_3154736.html)

Of his experience with Mashrou Leila, Youssef stated, "I heard their songs and I didn't ask about his orientation ... Did we discuss [his] being openly gay on the show? We didn't."  He then added that "They will just try to dig up anything to...alienate you in front of the people."

Here is a segment from 'The Huffington Post' web site in which Bassem Youssef discusses this matter (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/04/25/bassem-youssef-mashrou-leila-_n_3154736.html):







Here is the Mashrou' Leila segment from Bassem Youssef's TV show Albarnameg:  http://youtu.be/WzreD9hU7g4?t=1m36s

ABOUT MASHROU' LEILA:
Born of a nocturnal encounter at the American University of Beirut in 2008, Mashrou’ Leila is a seven-member band that fuses the craftiness of a music workshop with the punch of stadium rock. With their distinct approach to
storytelling and orchestration, they have crafted 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 in Lebanon, Cairo, Amman, Paris, Amsterdam, Geneva and Serbia.

Their eponymous debut album and the 7al Romacy EP 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 in dealing with musical form, narrative, and social issues.

Arabic Lyrics to Mashrou' Leila's Version of 'Ne Me Quitte Pas' ما تتركني هيك

Here are the Arabic lyrics to Mashrou' Leila's version of the Jacques Brel classic 'Ne Me Quitte Pas' titled 'ما تتركني هيك' [Don't Leave Me Like This]

See video clip of the group performing this song live in concert after the lyrics below.

ما تتركني هيك
عم بفتّش عليك
بأسفل كل كاس
بين تخوت هالناس
اتوهّم وجهك
وبنادي اسمك
كأنه موشوم
عشفافي اسمو
مزاجها عفريت
بحبر مميت
ما إلو دوا
خيبة الهوا

ما تتركني هيك
ما تتركني هيك 
ما تتركني هيك 
ما تتركني هيك 

حبيبي خليك
و بيحلى السمر
بنشرب القمر
و نوره بيِرْويك
بقتفلك النجوم
بركّبها عتاج
ببني لنا ملاج
ورا الغيوم

واذا هجرت 
خد قلبي معك
خد روحي معك
و اتركني بالمُر

ما تتركني هيك 
ما تتركني هيك 
ما تتركني هيك 
ما تتركني هيك
