BEIRUT BAND IN RIO

16 November 2014

A Good Combination of Indie Folk and Pop

513epetzhiLBeirut is an American band which was originally the solo musical project of Zach Condon, and later expanded into a band. The band’s first performances were in New York, in May 2006.  Despite their name, Beirut had never performed in Lebanon until they appeared at the Byblos International Festival in August 2014. Beirut’s music combines elements ofindie-rock and world music.

Condon has a diverse musical work  because he  was exposed to Mexican music, worked at a cinema showing international films and this piqued his interest in Fellini arias and Sicilian funeral brass as well as providing his first experience of Balkan music.

His first album , the Gulag Orkestar was released in 2006. On the strength of the recordings, Condon was signed under the name of Beirut to Ba Da Bing records. He recruited some friends to play the music live for the first shows in New York and Beirut  Band was born. download

Beirut’s first official music video was for the song “Elephant Gun” and  the second was for the song “Postcards from Italy”. The  second album, The Flying Club Cup  has a French influence due to Condon’s interest in French chanson during its recording.

Condon is a multi skilled musician. He plays a rotary valve flugelhorn and the ukulele as his main instruments but he also  plays the trumpet, euphonium, mandolin, accordion, various keyboard instruments  and a modified conch shell that appears on The FlyingClub Cup.

Zach Сondon also works in many  side projects such as Realpeople ,  Small-Time American Bats, Soft Landing  project ”a pop version of Beirut and  Freak-folk, with a heavy emphasis on dance beats and sheer energy” and Pompeii Records  label founded by Condon to give the band and himself  full control over their music.

On the benefit of the album Red Hot + Rio 2, Beirut performed a cover of the Portuguese-language song O Leãozinho originally written by Caetano Veloso.

The Beirut Band will perform at Vivo Rio Music hall on November 27th at 10 pm

The band has produced eight gold albums, three sextuple-Platinum albums (Leftoverture, Point of Know Return, Best of KANSAS), one platinum live album, and a million-selling gold single, ‘Dust in the Wind.’ KANSAS appeared on the Billboard charts for over 200 weeks throughout the ‘70′s and ‘80′s and played to sold-out arenas and stadiums throughout North America, Europe and Japan. ‘Carry On Wayward Son’ was the #2 most played track on classic rock radio in 1995 and went to #1 in 1997.

In 1998, KANSAS released an orchestral album; “Always Never the Same,” recorded with the London Symphony Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios in London. They followed with an orchestral tour accompanied by top-caliber symphony orchestras.

In 2000 KANSAS went back into the studio with original band member and songwriter Kerry Livgren to produce “Somewhere to Elsewhere,” the first album featuring all 6 of the original players in 20 years! The ten new songs were written by Kerry Livgren and recorded in his studio in Topeka.

downloadOn the following years KANSAS, released  several  works. Among them  a  DVD  entitled “Device-Voice-Drum.” The DVD was the driving force behind the 2002/2003 tour, a two-disc (one CD/one DVD) anthology “Works In Progress”, the DVD “There’s Know Place Like Home” that  captured the unique live performance of the celebration of  their 35th Anniversary with a symphonic concert, accompanied by the Washburn University Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Larry Baird. This DVD includes favorites such as ‘Dust In The Wind,’ ‘Carry On Wayward Son’ and ‘Point of Know Return’ as well as a sampling from each album in their discography, with a special symphonic touch.

Inspired by their 35th Anniversary DVD “ There’s Know Place Like Home”,  KANSAS conducted their ‘Collegiate Symphony Tour’ from 2010-2012 performing their hits accompanied by various college and university symphonies throughout the United States to help raise funds and awareness for collegiate music programs.  In 2011, this tour lead to a special collaboration with the US Army Orchestra culminating in the ‘Carry On Concert’ honoring America’s veterans on Veteran’s Day 11/11/11 at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, DC.
