Co-produced across the UK and the Arab world, Masåfåt debuted in London, Cairo and Beirut last year. The festival returns this September, full of insightful panels, workshops, and lucky for us, intimate gigs performed by innovative artists at London's ICA.
Expect avant-gardist Oren Ambarchi who extends the boundaries of his guitar beyond recognition, electronic experimentalist Mark Fell, Oud player Sam Shalabi, percussionist Will Guthrie, visual artist Mark Fell, and Egyptian sing-songwriter Nada El Shazly who integrates early twentieth century music traditions with her jazz-leaning vocals.
They deliver the sound of the modern Arab world to ICA on September 1st.
Presented by 33 33 & ICA.
This is an 18+ event.
