The alternative Arabic rock band Malaaz is set to perform at El Sawy Culturewheel in Zamalek on 6 July.
The Egyptian band Malaaz (Refuge) was formed in 2014 by guitarist, composer and lyricist Mohamed Abdelrazik, and lead guitarist Amr Beshr, who both shared a passion for rock and metal music.
The pair met in 2012, when Abdelrazik introduced Beshr to another band with a similar background.
The two were eventually joined by vocalist Maged Amer and they began to rehearse on a regular basis, along with their former drummer.
In 2014, bassist Moataz El Nashar joined the band, and in early 2015, drummer AJ El-Gohary came to complete the current lineup.
The band aims to create alternative rock music that is accessible to the public, regardless of their musical background and taste.
Thursday, 6 July
River Hall, El Sawy Culturewheel, 26 July St., Zamalek, Cairo
