Beirut is an American indie band which was originally the solo musical project of Zachary Francis Condon. The band’s music blends elements of Balkan influenced folk and indie rock while still maintaining a pop sensibility. Ever since the band’s formation in 2006, Beirut have become a indie tastemaker favorite worldwide and a favorite among Austin hipsters young and old.
