Hania Fansa and her band will perform on the roof of contemporary art centre Darb 1718 on 11 January, as part of this month's Mazzika X El-Sat7 event.

The singer and songwriter will perform her own music along with covers, backed by her alternative-rock band.

The band, which describes its music as "grunge acoustic, and electric psychedelic indie", features Ali Kaliuby on electric guitar, Faris Erfan on bass guitar, and Mohamed Nader on the drums.

Fansa has performed in many venues in Cairo, including Cairo Opera House (ft. Rania Shalaan), Art Lounge Cairo, the Sufi Bookstore, and Makan.

Mazzika x El-Sat7 consists of a series of concerts performed on the roof of Darb 1718, and has been going for the past year.
