Mashrou’ Leila are a four-piece indie band based in Beirut. Their rousing, sensual electro-pop anthems have challenged the status quo of the Middle East’s pop industry.

 
Mashrou' Leila
 

The loose collective of students who began jamming together in 2008 at the American University of Beirut has gradually focused into an ambitious, fiercely articulate quartet: vocalist/lyricist Hamed Sinno, guitartist/multi-instrumentalist Firas About Fakher, violinist Haig Papazian and drummer Carl Gerges.

The music they make has focused, too, into a charged, atmospheric version of pop that is geographically impossible to place. The lyrics draw on their collective experiences, which the band shares with the youth of the Middle East, and addresses the need of self-expression and a judgment free culture.

Through their relevant and charged lyrics, their music has resonated with fans all over the globe, gaining international recognition for the band. CNN has described Mashrou’ Leila as “The voice of their generation” while the Financial Times have called them “The Arab world’s most influential independent band”.

They have collaborated on some songs with some stellar names in the music industry down the years including Nile Rodgers, Hindi Zahra, Erik Truffaz and Narcy to name a few and in their most recent album, the Beirut Tour, some songs are produced by Joe Goddard (Hot Chip).
