The American indie rock band Beirut started as a solo project by Zach Condon, and later became a band that has found popularity around the world, especially for their most popular song "Nantes."
With their wide range of instruments including guitar, violin, accordion, mandolin, ukulele and drums, they combine indie rock and world music in Balkan-inspired upbeat songs. Presently, beside Condon, the band has Nick Petree on drums, Paul Collins on electric and upright bass, Kyle Resnick on trumpet, Ben Lanz on trombone and Aaron Arntz on piano and keyboards.
So far, Beirut has released four albums: "Gulag Orkestar" in 2006, "The Flying Club Cup" in 2007 and "The Rip Tide" in 2011. On May 28, they will be promoting their new album "No No No" at KüçükÇiflik Park.
