Mashrou’ Leila

The melancholic sound that catapulted Mashrou’ Leila to regional stardom is back with a vengeance here. The fluid vocals float over the familiar violin thrusts, while the unorthodox mix of elements – taking in both Arabic and Western influences – makes Raasük hard to categorize. Tracks like “Lil Watan” confront the region’s social ills while singer Hamed Sinno’s lyrics retain their ambiguous sexual nuances. Raasük is unmistakably Mashrou’ Leila, but there’s plenty of innovation here too.
