Stream Nadah El Shazly's debut album 'Ahwar' in full
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.
Now, her debut album 'Ahwar' is available to stream in full: a truly extraordinary collection of songs and styles that have been mashed and made completely her own. The album was composed arranged in collaboration with Maurice Louca and Sam Shalabi, two members of The Dwarfs of East Agouza trio along with Alan Bishop.
Listen to the opening track 'Afqid Adh-Dhakira (I Lose Memory)', and stream the album in full via The Wire, who also interview Nadah El Shalzy on the album.
