Eventually, the steam needs an outlet, and the Damascus trio Tanjaret Daghet – guitarist Tarek Ziad Khuluki, bassist and lead vocalist Khaled Omran and drummer Dani Shukri – have found that escape in Beirut's vibrant music scene.Growing up in Syria, where the musical culture emphasizes classical and traditional music, the sounds of rock 'n' roll were not always welcomed. Their debut album, "180 Degrees," was released in 2015 . The title, the band claims, reflects a 180-degree turn in their approach to music, signifying their shift from a group of friends playing mostly freestyle into a cohesive group with written, thought-out songs. What's the point in playing the same music?The music of Tanjaret Daghet is difficult to confine to a singular genre: a bit of rock, a touch of jazz, a sprinkle of electronic, mixed with traditional Arabic style.The complex freestyle feeling of jazz music is interspersed throughout.The band has generated a devoted following in Beirut, with fans singing and dancing along passionately to many of their songs at concerts.
