Crossing Musical Borders

Multi-instrumentalist Zachary Condon, and his band Beirut, will be appearing at Warsaw’s Stodoła Club Aug. 17.

Beirut grew out of one of Condon’s solo projects. The band draws on a hodgepodge of musical genres—from classical and alternative rock, through to electronica and psychedelia, and on to Gypsy and Balkan rhythms. Beirut’s debut album, Gulag Orkestar, which came out in 2006, combined folk music with styles associated with Eastern Europe. Jeremy Barnes, who had previously worked with Neutral Milk Hotel and A Hawk and a Hacksaw, and Heather Trost from A Hawk and a Hacksaw, took part in the project. Their next album, The Flying Club Cup, which came out a year later, was inspired by artists like Jacques Brel, Serge Gainsbourg and Yves Montand.

Beirut’s third album, March of the Zapotec, was released last year as a concatenation of two EPs. The first, which bears the same title as the album, crosses over in the realm of Mexican folk music. The second, titled Holland, has an electro-synth pop vibe with a déja vu of Condon’s previous musical incarnation.
