Leila Milki’s ‘Leil Ya Leil’ is so beautiful. The song which means ‘Night Oh Night’ is an original Arabic/English fusion written by Leila. That fusion is mesmerising as I get lost listening to all the different elements and those enchanting vocals.
Leila said the song is a nostalgic homage to Lebanon, “combining poetic storytelling, soulful vocals, traditional Arabic instrumentation, organic and dynamic rhythms, and contemporary pop elements to capture a longing for home.”

“As a multilingual Lebanese-American singer, songwriter, and pianist, I seek to celebrate diversity and infuse popular music with rich cultural stylings, bridging East and West in song.” – Leila Milki
I am eager to hear more from her.
