It’s not often that the worlds of house and hip-hop have met in Egypt, but this is exactly what has happened with new single, Sahl El Kalam, which sees local tech house favourites, Aguizi & Fahim, team up with vocalist, Shahd El Shaarawy.
While El Shaarawy has made her name on the music scene alongside Ayman Seleha and Mohamed ‘Mesho’ Magdi as part of Egyptian hip-hop and r&b trio, Young Pharoz, this new track is sure to shine a light on one of the local scene’s most underappreciated talents.
Out of this unlikely collaboration has come a video, too, which, in around 12 hours since been released, has received an impressive 55,000+ views on Facebook.
The song is a reminder of the deep pool of talent currently operating on Egypt’s music scene. Aguizi & Fahim are former Student DJ winners and have been one of the most in-demand DJ acts since winning the crown in 2013, while Young Pharoz’s appearance on The X Factor Arabia in the same year introduced the region to the group’s cleverly written and witty music. More of this please.
