Egyptian singer Fairouz Karawya released her latest album titled Kohl on Youtube on Saturday.

The album includes seven tracks from her project Mazagang, which was a collaboration with several young musicians, and features various musical influences such as Egyptian shaabi and folk music.

According to Al-Ahram's Arabic website, Karawya said she wanted to present something eclectic but Egyptian at heart. 

Through Mazagang she sought to present new sounds and new vocals, by mixing electronic music with other live instruments such as the mizmar, oud and piano, among others.

The songs are composed by Karawya and Karim Hosem, with lyrics by Mohab Nasr, Mahmoud Radwan, Moemen El-Mohammady, Omar Taher and Khalaf Gaber. Wagdy El-Fowy contributes vocals, oud and keyboard.

Fayrouz made her musical debut in 2001, performing a song in the critically and commercially acclaimed movie Asrar El-Banat (The Secrets of Girls.)

Later in 2012, Fayrouz released her first album titled Barra Menny (Outside of Me), which was a best-seller at Cairo’s Virgin Megastore for five staight weeks.
