Tania Saleh/Cairokee Concert

So yesterday was Canada Day (woot woot!), and I spent it enjoying the festivities in Trafalgar Square – iced caps and timbits and poutine and a sea of red and white!

BUT, I also was able to spend the evening at an amazing concert at the Barbican to see Taniah Saleh, a contemporary alternative Lebanese singer/songwriter/visual artist, and Cairokee, an Egyptian rock band.

I’m still getting into Arabic music, so I wasn’t familiar with these artists until I went to the event last night, but it was absolutely spectacular! I highly recommend checking out their websites and youtube videos and giving them a listen. (I’m absolutely terrible at taking pictures/videos when I’m at these things, otherwise I would have shared my own!)

Any other artists like these to recommend?
