    Fusing elements of Balkan folk, French chanson, and American indie, principle songwriter and singer Zach Condon fills out classically structured pop songs with charming ukulele, flugelhorn, and accordion. Condon's exotic takes on music are strongly influenced by the beauty and sounds of places he's traveled to, evoking memories, warmth, longing, and inevitably, joy.

    Beirut is the perfect band for those craving something completely different. Fusing elements of Balkan folk, French chanson, and American indie, principle songwriter and singer Zach Condon fills out classically structured pop songs with charming ukulele, flugelhorn, and accordion. Condon's exotic takes on music are strongly influenced by the beauty and sounds of places he's traveled to, evoking memories, warmth, longing, and inevitably, joy. His first album 'Gulag Orkestar' was made single-handedly and to critical acclaim, followed by the massively successful Flying Club Cup, and most recently the double EP 'March of the Zapotec/Holland'. The band's live sets are equally as breathtaking to watch as they are to listen to, and it's the Fusion stage that has the pleasure of hosting them.

    Lyrics:
    If I was young, I'd flee this town
    I'd bury my dreams underground
    As did I, we drink to die, we drink tonight

    Far from home, elephant gun
    Let's take them down one by one
    We'll lay it down, it's not been found, it's not around

    Let the seasons begin - it rolls right on
    Let the seasons begin - take the big king down

    Let the seasons begin - it rolls right on
    Let the seasons begin - take the big king down

    And it rips through the silence of our camp at night
    And it rips through the night

    And it rips through the silence of our camp at night
    And it rips through the silence, all that is left is all that i hide
