Mashrou' Leila Rocks San Francisco

Mashrou' Leila performing in San Francisco
Lebanese band Mashrou' Leila's concert at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco on October 27, 2015 was truly an event of electrifying proportions.  The band performed a slew of hits from their first 3 albums to a sold-out audience that included people of all ethnicities and backgrounds,   Though they do not play any tracks from their Ibn El Leil upcoming CD, the band did surprise their fans with an impromptu version of Britney Spears' "Toxic" sung in Arabic with lyrics that were as catchy as they were naughty.

One week before their SF performance, the band's lead singer Hamed Sinno spoke to Arabology about the band's US tour where he shared his thoughts on the band's iconic status both in the Arab world and abroad.  That interview can be heard at https://soundcloud.com/arabology/hamesinno2015.



Here are some pictures from the SF concert, including a backstage collage of the band with Dr. Ramzi Salti.
