Concert "Tania Saleh: Beirut Windows", dins de "Música Mercè"

Tania Saleh: Beirut Windows (Lebanon; contemporary song)

Contemporary sounds and Arab tradition come together in the music of Tania Saleh, a singer who is also a visual artist and who promises to be a revelation for the Barcelona audience. And it is that she receives the influence of the tradition to make a few issues today, on a journey that goes from electronic to song. You will find out by listening to topics like "Beirut Windows", which is part of the latest album, Shwayit Souwar (Some Images). In this album he explores the intimate history of the Arab female universe and contrasts it with madness of wars, hates and divisions.

Pay attention to the message of an artist who invites the inhabitants of the Arab world to go beyond corruption, religious extremism or crisis and to unite around the beauty and richness that has generated their culture. Hence he has signed albums such as Intersections, where he created everything from contemporary songs from traditional poems of the Arab world.

Tania Saleh: voice, Mohammad Najem: Clarinet and flute, Baptiste de Castets: Battery, Marc Buronfosse: Bass, Ghasan Fendri: Electric and classical guitar, Youssef Zayed: Percussion/oud.
