Renowned for their emotive lyrics and uplifting songs, Adonis has been, for over a decade, re-shaping the sound of modern Lebanese music.

Adonis is a Lebanese rock band formed in 2011 by Anthony Adonis (vocals, keys) and Joey Abou Jawdeh (guitars). The pair, who met during their university days studying architecture together, were later joined by Nicola Hakim on drums and Gio Fikany on bass guitar.

The band has become known for their electrifying live shows and poignant, often whimsical songwriting. Written in the Lebanese dialect, and tackling themes of identity and longing, many of their songs, such as “Yeb’a Enna” and “Al Khafif”, have become anthems across the Arabic-speaking world.

Adonis has, so far, released 6 studio albums and performed sold-out shows around the world, headlining some of the most prestigious concert venues and festivals, such as the Amman Roman Amphitheatre (Jordan), the Carthage International Festival (Tunisia), and the Baalbeck International Festival (Lebanon).

The band has also collaborated with UNICEF, Netflix and Brazil’s Globo TV. Its frontman Anthony Adonis has written and produced music for leading Lebanese artists, such as Hiba Tawaji and Dana Hourani.

Lebanon’s favourite quartet is now set to perform at the Arts of Lebanon Festival (ALiF) in London, June 2024.
