Nadah El Shazly voice / electronics

Nadah El Shazly is one of many musicians leading the new wave of experimental music in Egypt. Based in Cairo, the last few years have seen her compose the thrilling, large-scale opus Ahwar, a record that realises her experiences of jazz, electronic and rock music, blowing up each into the widescreen of a big band. The record is a testament to El Shazly’s open-ended approach: to make an experimental music that engages every possible sound source. At hcmf// 2019, she reverts to her economical set-up of voice and electronics, supplementing her vocal experiments with trusty keyboards. Following her improvisational instincts, the concert will find her in labyrinth-making mode once again, creating a journey as unexpected as the one lurking in Ahwar.

Produced by hcmf//

This event will finish at approximately 9.50pm
