Accordionist Youssra El-Hawary will perform at Room Art Space on 26 April, accompanied by her band.

El Hawary is an accordionist, composer, songwriter, singer, and actress.

Since 2010 she gained momentum with her unique style of songs, a satirical mix of social commentary, which she would perform solo with only the accordion.

She then began working with other musicians and formed her band that is comprised of Shadi El-Hosseiny at the piano, Sedky Sakhr with the harmonica, Tarek Abdelkawi on the Buzuki, and percussionist Luca Lowai Gamal.

The band’s sound blends Alternative Folk, French chanson, indie rock, and jazz.

They released their first album, which was entirely crowdfunded, in 2017, and have been on local and international concert tours.

Most recently they performed at Jazz Tales Festival in Alexandria, last October they were in the USA, and their upcoming stops include France and Geneve.

Friday 26 April at 9pm
Room Art Space and Cafe, 10 Etehaad Al Mohamin St., Garden City, Cairo
