Recently I came across this amazing "project" that is based in Lebanon.
Mashrou' Laila which means "An Overnight Project" in English is making some serious noise People!
They are a perfect example of hard work & perseverance. It all started out like everything great we know - a small work shop in the American University Of Beirut (AUB). Its their dedication & serious talent not to mention their unique style what got them to be recognized throughout Lebanon & even the Middle East!
Somehow I always believed the LIVE shows are the true judge weather an artist is talented or not. I mean I always dream about watching Dave Mathew Band Live because I hear their Live shows are on another level & that brings me to Laila - I haven't seen Laila in concert yet; but I sure will soon. I've seen some videos & for me I love the passion that the guys bring out each in their own unique style given that the band has 7 members in which each does their job more than well to have a great end result!
On Dec 19th,2009 they launched their latest album in a concert in Beirut in which alot of people attended & enjoyed the performance with a copy of their Album! (id say go get a CD right now! if you into some original not fake music..)
REVOLT will have an interview with the guys from Mashrou' Leila & maybe a small performance :) "working on it"
Best of luck to the guys & stay real in this Fake Music Industry!
Enjoy this small Tune by ML.
