Egyptian band Wust El-Balad, which played a key role in shaping Egypt’s underground scene with their success in the 2000s, are performing amid the Cairo Opera House's Summer Festival on Saturday, 15 June.

The group, that remained successful after changes in their formation, released their last album, 'Bantalony El-Jeans,' last year — their fourth after Wust El-Balad (2007), Rubabekya (2011) and Karakib (2014).

Wust El-Balad are celebrating their 20th anniversary this year. More active lately, their co-founder and lead singer, Hany Adel, is currently starring in films and on television.
