Mashrou3 Leila is Arabic for ‘an overnight project’. It started out as a music workshop at the American University of Beirut in 2008, an open platform for students of architecture and design to experiment with sounds and make things audible. Haig Papazian, Carl Gerges, Hamed Sinno, Omaya Malaeb, Andre Chedid, Firas Abou Fakher and Ibrahim Badr sustained their collective as Mashrou3 Leila, an experiment. You can hear cascading melts of masculine vocals, only suspended with thrusts of violin; beats and bass attacked by melodies sometimes neurotic, sometimes tender, and even sometimes on pause. Through the music, you can smell where Leila has been, in bed sheets, on sidewalks, and spilled coffee on dresses.
