Beirut is an American band which was originally the solo musical project of Santa Fe native Zach Condon, and later expanded into a band. The band's first performances were in New York, in May 2006, to support the release of their debut album, Gulag Orkestar. 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 of indie-rock and world music.
