Lekhfa: Maryam Saleh, Maurice Louca and Tamer Abu Ghazaleh
From dystopian poetry to bass-heavy to stripped down Egyptian dance tracks, MARSM and LAAF (Liverpool Arab Arts Festival) present a captivating concert by Lekhfa, one of the most enticing musical projects making headlines and pushing the boundaries of Egypt’s burgeoning underground music scene.
Lekhfa is the brainchild of Maryam Saleh, Maurice Louca and Tamer Abu Ghazaleh, three legendary musicians who came of age in 1990s Cairo. Decades later, each having paved their way through the alternative Arabic music scene, have united to create a stunning new album that gives birth to an off-kilter sound of beats, grit and resistance. The Cairo delegates, teetering on the edges of Egyptian shaabi, electro-shaabi, pop and psychedelia, are backed by anything from oud and buzuq lute to slide guitars, drums, beat loops and electronica. A rapturous combination of extraordinary musical talent and creativity, their stunning works intertwine around the dystopian poems of their contemporary Mido Zoheir, one of the most celebrated Egyptian poets of their generation.
