MASHROU’ LEILA // Ruptured Session // 12 Oct 2009

This band needs very little in the way of introduction…. Recent winners of the 96.2FM music prize, fresh from a string of concerts in the south of Lebanon, truly outstanding neo-rockers Mashrou’ Leila graced the studios of Radio Lebanon with an impromptu interview/mini-concert. Present in the studio were violin player Haig Papazian, guitarist Andre Chedid (playing acoustic), drummer Carl Gerges (on djembe), guitarist Firas Abou Fakher (on tambourine), vocalist Hamed Sinno… and of course indispensable sound engineer Fadi Tabbal.
