Zeid and the Wings are a project by Zeid Hamdan; singer, songwriter, musician, and pioneer of the underground music scene. Today the band also tours with musicians of the Syrian star band, "Tanjaret Daght " with Khaled Omran on Bass and vocals , Dany Shukri on drums and Tarek Khouloud on keyboards and guitar. 

It is hard to define Zeid and the Wings’ repertoire as any one genre. The band is known for producing Arabic folk , reggae , rock and edgy electro songs  thanks to the blending of harmonic vocals with innovative beats, their style delights many tastes and alienates none.

 

Their 2010 song ‘Generale Suleiman’ became a hit after Italian director Gigi Roccatti produced and released a video for the song on YouTube. Its reggae beat and politically ambiguous message have been a big hit both in Lebanon and abroad and sparked the idea for an Italian tour in January 2011 to promote the band, the video, and a hit book ‘Beirut, I love you’ by Zena El Khalil.

 

Zeid and the Wings were placed at number 5 on Monocles top 10 of best Lebanese Musicians. The band has also been featured in such publications as the Los Angeles Times, The Saudi Gazette, Italy’s ‘La Republica’ Magazine, and Time Out Beirut’s November 2010 edition.
