Nadah El Shazly
Curated by Jerusalem In My Heart
Nadah El Shazly is one of the most versatile and progressive Egyptian musicians. The Cairo-based artist garnered that status by immersing herself in many different stylistics, including jazz, classical, blues, punk rock and electronic music. Exploring all these blueprints allows her to channel traditional Egyptian vocal techniques from a contemporary frame of reference. Performing as a one-woman band, El Shazly combines her immense vocal talent with electronic sounds, loops and pitch instruments.
