Adonis is a musical project that came to life in summer 2010 when two architecture students at the American University of Beirut (Joey -guitar- & Anthony -vocals/piano-) got together to put music to Anthony’s lyrics. They were soon joined by friends and musicians who share the same passion for their local musical heritage, and the same desire to see it grow and evolve.

Armed with a remarkably eclectic baggage of influences and backgrounds, the group soon started recording demos and posting them on Facebook, sparking interest and gaining fast popularity amongst school and university students.

Following the success of the band’s debut single ‘Daw L Baladiyyi’, which entered local pop charts and aired on several Arabic radio and Television networks during spring 2011, the band released its first studio album in July 2011; and, in early 2012, a second single from that CD for the song ‘Ma Kan Mafroud’, in collaboration with singer/songwriter Tina Yamout. Both videos were directed by Robert Cremona.

Having participated in major events and festivals across Lebanon, and collaborated with the most prominent musicians and artists on the local musical scene, the band’s sound has matured into a rich mesh of engaging texts texts, festive tunes, folksy beats, playful arrangements and street nonchalance, with a song structure and a play of scales that often echo works of the classical Arabic repertoire.

Currently, the boys are working on recording their second album, to be released in June 2012. 'Fi Zini Ktir', the first single from that disc, directed by Jad Shweiry, was released in December 2012.
