The Byblos International Festival welcomed Mashrou' Leila back to its sea-side stage Friday night.The band performed a 90-minute set to a full house, debuting songs from their latest album, "Ibn El Leil" ("Son of the Night"). They also performed earlier tracks such as "Fasateen" ("dresses") and "Raksit Leila" ("Leila's Dance"). Appearing onstage in black wings and masks much like the ones on the latest album's cover art, composer and lead vocalist Hamed Sinno introduced each song with a minisynopsis, one redolent of the band's humility.Violinist Haig Papazian, guitarist Andre Chedid and keyboardist Omaya Malaeb formed Mashrou' Leila in 2008, for a music jam session at the American University at Beirut.Band members joke that the name means "Leila's Project," an ambitious crowdfunding project to raise money for some mysterious Leila.
