Lety, Jonas, Christian, Ayman, Charis, and Fabian connected on a musical level before they realized that each one of them carried a different passport.
The melodies were written between NYC, Cairo, Beirut, and Berlin by Lety, a reeds player and composer born to Egyptian and Mexican immigrant parents in suburban America. She and producer Khalil Chahine developed album tracks that each tell part of a global story of music with a modern sound, taking inspiration from their Arab and Latin heritage and the pop-classic, funk, rock, electronic, and jazz artists that were always spinning in the background. Once the band met in the studio, the energy hooked, and together with guest artists from Cairo, Beirut and Bogotá, they recorded 9-track album, Out Of Nations.
Live, the band invites audiences on a journey through Middle Eastern and Latin inspired Electro-Acoustic grooves — a soundtrack to match the visual wonderland they create on stage. Out of Nations breathes new life into familiar genres by playing original, danceable World Music rooted in pop, funk & jazz.
Out Of Nations is produced by Khalil Chahine.
