There"re just just two things that can win over stereotypes. Fightin them. And inverting them with irony, joy and fantasy.
That"s what Beirut girls are doing, imposing themelves as the new muses of the music scene. Bending the past to the a new vision of the future, where there"s no more west and east but a fusion of both into a new identity. Singers, composers, rappers in the name of Allah and Mtv, they make fun of sex and boundaries blending a new style. It"s the product of the osmosis of decades of leaving and coming back, every time with new influences and more knowledge to impose a change.
