JEDDAH/LONDON: Egyptian composer, singer and guitarist Hamza Namira will make his London debut in a concert “Honesty meets Audacity” on Feb. 11. The concert will be held at London’s Logan Hall.
Namira is one of the most celebrated faces of modern Arabic music. A songwriter, singer, and multi-instrumentalist from Egypt, Hamza has become a luminous expression of his homeland’s resilience and ambition.
During his London debut show, Hamza will perform a special selection of songs from his three authentic, fresh and bold albums.
Hamza has held many sold-out concerts in Alexandria and Cairo, while also performing internationally, across the Arab world and beyond. Broadcasted until recently on Egyptian media, his songs of freedom, full of hope for a better future, garnered tens of thousands of views online within hours after their release. Influences in his music include Egyptian traditional and folk music, as well as light rock, jazz, and Latin music, to which he adds his memorable tonality and charisma.
His debut album “Ehlam ma’aya” (Dream with me) was released in 2008.
In 2011, in the wake of the revolution, Hamza released his second album “Insan” (Human), hopeful, innovative, and deep in scope and subjects. In 2014, Hamza released his highly anticipated third album “Esmaani” (Listen to me), in which he investigates once more a variety of themes, from issues of identity to traffic jams, generation gaps, and oppression.
The concert is organized by Marsm, an events company that promotes the rich and diverse culture of the Arab world across the UK, and is sponsored by Alaraby TV Network.
