Mashrou Leila in Florence ph. M Studio Tommaso Majonchi
After the first concert in Italy on the occasion of Middle East Now, the Lebanese cult band Mashrou’ Leila is back to Italy for three live concerts: November 6 in VENICE, November 7 in PARMA and on the 9th in MILAN.

The European tour of the band, following the release of the third album Raasuk, is collecting a great success and every new concert is an amazing sold out. Mashrou’ Leila are the most popular indie-rock band at the moment in the Middle East, and after being on stage for the first time in Italy during the concert of April 11 at Auditorium Flog in Florence, with an incredible performance in front of nearly 1,000 fans coming from all over Italy, their coming back to Italy is becoming a most anticipated event.
Here are the dates: 6 November in VENICE – Centro Culturale Candiani7 November in PARMA for Barezzi Live Festival, and on the 9th in MILAN at Circolo Magnolia.

They have recently gained the cover of the music bible “Rolling Stone”, as the first Arab band to be featured on the cover magazine. Their third album is a true turning point. The title Raasuk could be translated as the expression “They are choreographing you”, and since the album cover, designed by the singer Hamed Sinno, the sound of their instruments and the depth of the texts – including ballads, jazz, synthpop melodies and contaminations of pure rock – everything suggests that the path of the band is fastly growing. And also the series of concerts that are holding in several European cities is witnessing the Mashrou’ Leila are earning a place of honor among the most acclaimed bands in the contemporary indie-rock scene.
If you fancy a trip “music” of pure energy, Middle East Now strongly advises you a concert of Mashrou’ Leila… keep yourself updated on the new dates!
