Tania Saleh is a Lebanese singer/songwriter/visual artist who has been paving her own path in the independent Arabic underground musical scene since 1990.
Her voice is a soft mix between the traditional Arabic music she was raised on and the western sounds she chose to follow. She writes about the daily worries of a troubled society, of love and hate and what’s in between. Her music follows the rhythm of her daily life and mirrors her changing mood, creating a boiling pot of tunes,
feelings and love for innovation. Her visual style also helped to create a unique artistic image that made her stand out from the Arabic commercial musical scene.
Tania graduated from La Sorbonne, Paris in 1992 with a Master’s degree in Fine Arts and has been working in the creative audio-visual industry since then.
She was an illustrator, a backing vocalist and an actress in famous Lebanese musician and playwright Ziad Rahbany’s musical and theatrical work between 1993 and 1996.

In 2009, she released the single and shot the music video entitled "Ya Wled", a critical ode to all Lebanese politicians prior to the parliamentary elections.
Her first trip to the U.S.A. was hosted by music producer/manager Miles Copeland (The Police/Sting) who chose her as one of the main Arab artists portrayed in the PBS-produced musical documentary entitled: “Dissonance and Harmony/Arab Music Goes West”. The documentary was preceded by a 5-day musical workshop uniting American and Arab artists at SIR studios in Los Angeles. It was directed by Jon Brandeis and aired on PBS, BBC, Al Jazeera and Al Hurra.
The result of this workshop/documentary was the songs: "Slow Down" (released on the compilation "Desert Roses5") and the song "Had There Been a Dream" (released on the compilation "Bagdad Heavy Metal") both produced by Miles Copeland.
