City of Salt are an experimental and startlingly contemporary Arabic three piece who tear apart the rule book and combine the oud, clarinet and electric guitar to explore Middle Eastern traditions through jazz, noise and improvisation. Their unusual compositions and non-conformist attitude will send a shiver down the spine of the purist.
City Of Salt tour dates
Leila Albayaty is of Iraqi French origin. A true artist who divides her time between music and movies, directing, composing and performing. Her songs are about love, loss and hope. Leila is a true cosmopolitan oozing with ambition and creativity - experimental and exciting.
