about

Safar is a Lebanese duo founded in 2013 by Mayssa Jallad (vocals, various percussion) and Elie Abdelnour (acoustic and electric guitars, bass). They are furthermore accompanied by their producer Fadi Tabbal on electric guitar, synthesizers and beats during live performances. Safar’s music consists of a very personal take on American and British psychedelic folk, infused with modern pop and rock references, as well as subtle references to the Lebanese golden age of 60's surf.

The band possesses a strong and widespread following in Lebanon, gathered over the years thanks to a number of intimate performances marked by singer Jallad’s emotional vocal delivery and Abdelnour's intricate guitar work.

"In Transit" is a compilation of Safar's first three EPs "23 Kilograms", "Carry-On" and "Gate 03". It was produced and released by Lebanese indie label Ruptured in December 2016, in a limited edition of 300 copies.
