Lebanese singer/songwriter Mayssa Jallad will be performing in Brussels on Saturday 04/11 at 8:30pm at Zoart. Mayssa will perform her new album Marjaa: The Battle of the Hotels, accompanied by guitarist/keyboardist Julia Sabra and drummer Pascal Semerdjian. The album’s songwriting conveys urban violence and is based on Jallad’s architectural research on Beirut’s Hotel district before, during and after the Lebanese Civil War.

“something so extraordinary that it gives one pause…. a work of reconstruction that uses modern Arabic-language song to subtle and breath-taking effect… an accomplished and unusual album.”
(The New Internationalist)

“It’s an album with everything; vital history, experimental melodicism, inventive structures, mountains of emotion, and Jallad’s stunning voice. There is so much to learn, so much to hear.”
(Foxy Digitalis)

“In an overwhelmingly creative and critical act, Mayssa Jallad turns the destruction of the Lebanese Civil War into a stunning,
two-sided album driven by poetic songwriting mixed with historical narration, lush strings and synths, gentle drones, and her
incredible vocal prowess.”

“In the end, the album, like the city on which it is based, feels like an infinite loop of history, relayed through the brave yet saintly voice of an artist who has taken the task of documenting the past through music.” (Bandcamp)
