  • In Photos: Aqsa Alwasat & Finrod Bring a Touch of the Alternative to Cairo Jazz Club

    While Cairo Jazz Club stands as the place to hear and see the country's biggest musical acts, it's also been a much bigger supporter of the undergroud music scene that many give them credit for. In fact, you only need to look back to one particular night that saw two of the best on said underground scene make-up a tasty midweek line-up. Cairo Gossip readers know all about ambient experimentalists, Finrod, but Aqsa Alwasat just might be the best band you've never heard of. Formed in 2014 by keyboardist and music producer, Amr Ezz, and vocalist and songwriter, Tuqa McAwi, it's almost impossible to pin down a description of  Aqsa Alwasat sounds, but as these photos show, the crowd was lapping it up like no tomorrow.
