Playlist: La Bel Haki By Adonis.

Adonis is a great poet, but it is also a name of a great (not so) little Lebanese band. Like it is captured by Now Lebanon, “the five boys from Adonis produce songs that are, at times, achingly gorgeous, charming, whimsical and enchantingly Lebanese.”

Time Out Beirut suggests: “If the rambling back alleys, low-slung electricity cables and small, dusty, bustling neighborhoods of Beirut had a soundtrack, this would be it.”

You can listen to one of their new songs, beautiful La Bel Haki, on You Tube.
