Beirut is the name of the band of 22-year-old Santa Fe native Zach Condon. The first official release under the Beirut name was assisted by Jeremy Barnes (Neutral Milk Hotel, A Hawk and a Hacksaw) and Heather Trost (A Hawk and a Hacksaw); it combines elements of Eastern European and folk sounds.

Live, Beirut's shifting roster generally consists of Condon accompanied by Perrin Cloutier (cello/accordion), Jason Poranski (guitar/mandolin/ukulele), Nick Petree (drums), Kristin Ferebee (violin), Paul Collins (organ/keys/tambourine/ukulele), Jon Natchez (baritone sax/mandolin/glockenspiel), and Kelly Pratt (trumpet/euphonium).

I've heard of Beirut so much, and I've been meaning to check them (or "him", I should say?) out for ages, but I've stil not gotten around to it. Faith

Yes! Beirut is the epitome of win!
Ever since some of their tracks appeared on a series here in Brazil (an artsy adaptation of a realist romance) I fell in love with the band, and so did a good portion of the country.
Their tracks are the kind of stuff you lister while thinking over life.
