HAWIDRO & RASHA- Shubbak Festival
Entry Requirements: Under 18's must be accompanied
A journey into the grooves and spirit of Afro-Arab music, Marsm & Shubbak present two major exponents of the deep connections between Subsaharan and North African music, Hawidro & Rasha, as part of the city-wide Shubbak Festival.
Hawidro comprises 8 musicians who came together with a shared vision to create a sound that links their African and Egyptian heritage. Featuring Vocals by Ahmed Abayazeid, Guitar, Bass Drums and traditional Percussion there is no genre out there that describes Hawidro -they are boundless- encompassing everything quirky and creative about their homeland.
Rasha grew up in an artistic family who moved from Sudan to Cairo. Her critically acclaimed album 'Sudaniyat' was named by Folk Roots as “one of the 10 best of 1997”. She plays the percussion with a backing guitar, oud and bass that accentuate her spectacular vocal skills using Arabic poetry, Sufi music and hints of reggae.
