Listen to Beirut’s catalog, and you’ll take a sonic trip around the globe. Their 2007 album The Flying Cup Club is a musical tour de France, while their EP March of the Zapotec is stocked with south-of-the-border sounds inspired by band leader Zach Condon’s (pictured) time in Oaxaca, Mexico. Not just another coffee-shop alt-rock flash in the pan, the band sets itself apart with a seamless combination of world music and contemporary cool. Beirut travels to the Montréal Jazz Festival to regale fans with tunes from their forthcoming album No, No, No.
