Arts Canteen presents Safar.
**Safar is a Lebanese indie-pop band based in New York, North Carolina and Beirut. Elie Abdelnour (Guitar) and Mayssa Jallad (Vocals) started writing music together in their hometown in 2013, when they won a music video with the Beirut Open Stage platform. Since then, they have recorded three EPs at Tunefork Studios with Producer Fadi Tabbal, and have performed at various venues in Beirut, Europe and the US. Tabbal accompanies Safar on guitar, beats and synthesizer during their live sets. Their latest EP “Gate 03” was released on September 10th 2016 at the Wickerpark Festival in Lebanon.
"The blend of Mayssa Jallad’s soaring vocals and on-the-button choices of melody lines alongside Elie Abdelnour’s subtle, understated guitar is balanced beautifully to create a warm, melancholy, intimate atmosphere that’s truly engaging." Adam Grundey, Triplew.me
