Music in Egypt has flourished over the past 5 years especially after the January 25 Revolution.
The underground music scene in Egypt has become as diverse as it has ever been as more artists form unique music — from heavy metal and electronic to jazz and blues.
Social media and many websites, such as SoundCloud, have helped in establishing new music genres in Egypt.
The musicians usually fuse between traditional Egyptian folk music with rock and jazz.
