Having released scores of chart-busting melodies over the years, Egyptian singer Mahmoud El-Esseily is expected to perform some of his hits including “Ya Nas” and “Fe Hetta Tanya.”
Sharmoofers is one of the most popular and most listened to rock bands in the Arab world. The Egyptian band is known for their hits “Khalas Hasayter” and “Zamba.”
The band is made up of four musicians who know how to get the crowd hyped.
The DJ trio update Arabic pop by infusing their music with hints of deep house and punk. In 2018, they released a remix of the already popular track “Talat Daqat.”
The new band is a collaborative project between three of Egypt’s most well-known indie musicians: Hany Adel (from the band Wust El-Balad), Ousso Lotfy (from Nagham Masry) and Hany El-Dakkak (who is part of Massar Egbari) will perform each other’s songs with fresh musical arrangements.
The famed band rose to prominence following the Egyptian revolution of 2011. The five-member group’s lyrics are politically inspired.
