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.
