Cairokee (with support from Dana Dajani) on Tuesday 30th October 2018
Hare and Hounds are pleased to welcome Cairokee on October 30th.
+ DANA DAJANI
HARE & HOUNDS
TICKETS £10 ADVANCE / £15 ON DOOR
'The name Cairokee expresses the band's irrefutable connection with their Egyptian audiences, combining Cairo & Karaoke to symbolize their 'singing along' with Cairo. Yet after over 15 years of performing and 4 albums, their captivating energy, creativity and humility has ensured that it is now Cairo that sings along with them.
Articulating the many elements of contemporary Egyptian society that drive their generation, their music balances rock and spacious electronica with hints of pop and chaabi. Their anthemic calls for freedom, self-reflection and societal changes are an innate reflection of their phenomenal song-writing abilities and fan base, yet are ones that have not always resonated with authorities back home.
As part of their anticipated autumn UK tour, Cairokee will be coming to Birmingham to play a high-voltage show at Hare and Hounds.'
Support comes from award-winning Palestinian actor and writer, Dajani. She uses her theatrical background to give her spoken word a performative edge. Having delivered her signature style of theatrical spoken-word pieces on stages across the world, her poems are passionate and insightful contributions to prominent themes of our time.
Cairokee’s 2018 UK tour is supported by Arts Council England.
This event is 14+. Under 16’s to be accompanied by an responsible 18+ adult.
Music Genres: Alternative, Choral, Folk, Rock
