Mashrou’ Leila مشروع ليلى

I first introduced this Lebanese outfit in September of last year. Their acerbic take on the political turmoil in the region is further heightened with this video Lil Watan, in which Mashrou’ Leila demonstrates the reality of the easy sell of sexual imagery to deflect the seriousness of the events occurring in the Middle East. The song reflects on perceptions of the distortion of truths and Sinnos’ own reality of being openly gay in a society in which it is not tolerated, whilst the eye of the viewer is focussed on the dancer.
