CAIRO – 27 February 2018: The famous band Cairokee will perform four concerts at the place that witnessed their real beginning – the Sawy Culture Wheel – on Wednesday and Thursday.
Cairokee is one of the most successful bands in Egypt; they are well-known for their folk and indie rock music, as well as their lyrics that tackle social and political issues in the country. The band was founded in 2003, but their hit "Soot al-Horreya" (Voice of Freedom), which they launched online in 2011, took them to another level of fame and placed them among pop stars.
The band released their latest album this past summer by the name “No'ta Beida”, which has gone viral and achieved millions of views on YouTube, as the whole album was filmed as music videos in a single location, except for their track “El Dinosaur”. The album contained their style along with different twists that their audience are not used to, but loved. There were also collaborations that took place in this album.
The concert will take place at Sawy Culture Wheel, which is considered one of the most prominent cultural centers in Cairo. It was founded back in 2011 and targets to provide a platform that eases the way for talents to present themselves properly through their stages and their audiences.
