Egypt is full of many crazy talented artists that deserve so much more recognition then they are given. From indie to rock, we’ve got it all! Here are 6 bands and artists every music lover should listen to.
SadaThat, formerly known as Egoz, is a four-piece indie/shoe-gaze band. They formed all the way back in 2006 and have been performing all over the country ever since. They released their first EP after rebranding in March of 2017. To know more about them or to listen to their music:
TWO: Hany Must
Speaking of SadaThat, their lead vocalist Hany Must has his own project that might almost be the complete opposite genre but just as good! Mostly indie/folk music, Hany performs his originals as well some covers sometimes. He recently released his new single Sun Kisses My Sky in November of 2018 and is out everywhere as well as being in the process of releasing a music video for it. With his soothing vocals and perfect combination of instruments, it is a ‘must’ listen to!

THREE: The Cadillacs
The Cadillacs are a rock/ blues (Rocakbilly) 4 member band whose music is the perfect fusion between the 50’s, 80’s and modern music. They add the perfect twist to songs by musical legends such as Elvis Presley, the Beatles, Johnny Cash and many more.
FOUR: Shady Ahmed
Shady’s voice is the unimaginable combination of John Mayer and Sam Smith, but even better. He writes his own music and even has an album out, which is probably one of the best produced albums released by an independent artist as well as covering music with Cinemania.
FIVE: Ahmed Harfoush
If you’re a jazz lover, not listening to Harfoush should be considered a crime! Going back and forth between London and Egypt, he knows how to not only pick the best songs, but also how to perform them. You should catch his shows when you can since they’re always fully booked! Even if you’re not a fan of jazz, just witnessing his perform with his outburst of energy and passion is enough!
Wael Alaa, aka NeoBYRD, is for all of you electronic music lovers out there. As opposed to popular beliefs, this type of music is not as easy as it seems at all. Being a DJ isn’t just about having the technology for it, but having crazy talent too! He’s known for his DaftPunk and NEUS remixes as well as being the genius behind the Axe commercial!
