Bei Ru


Saturday 10 December 2016 @11:00PM | Station

Baruir Panossian aka Bei Ru is an Armenian-American producer and composer known for his blending of Middle Eastern rhythms with electronic sounds and live instrumentation. He was born to Armenian immigrants from Lebanon in Los Angeles, California, and would often cite the old Armenian records his parents listened to in the family home, as a main influence on his music. Bei Ru first came to prominence with Little Armenia L.A (2010), an album created using almost entirely samples of Armenian music. His next album, Saturday Night at The Magic Lamp (2014), expertly navigated the realms of electronica, funk and hip-hop, mixed with Middle Eastern influences and live percussion. In the same year, Bei Ru contributed three songs to stylish Iranian vampire western A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night. He has just released his third album, L.A. Zooo.
