A pop-up event titled oksoundsgood. will take place at Startup Haus Cairo on 20 April.

Oksoundsgood. is an hub of artists and business professionals who collaborated with Startup Haus Cairo to present an event aiming to boost the entrepreneurial ecosystem for artists. Over the course of one day, the pop-up event brings together creatives and professionals working in different formats of music and visual art.

There will be three live music performances, by Ali Baghdady, Omar Abdelhady and The Chicken Came First.

Musician and singer and songwriter Baghdady combines elements of Arabic maqams with hip hop & EDM, enveloping all with jazzy harmonies.

Electronic musician Abdelhady creates groovy, graceful and powerful soundscapes.

After a four year hiatus, The Chicken Came First return with their unique blend of alternative, ambient and post-rock tracks. The band was formed in 2010 and is comprised of musicians Omar Abdelhady, Eslam Salem, Mostafa Kamel, and Majik (Majid Serag).

In parallel to the music, featured artists presenting visual projections of light installations and murals are Mohamed Nour, Nada Mergawi and El-Warshah.

Nour is an Alexandrian artist who experiments with electronic and acoustic sounds that he combines with analogue and digital visual imagery.

Mergawi is a painter and muralist whose projects include work for The British Museum.

El Warshah is a production house that will be presenting an installation that reflects on the identity of the event.

Saturday 20 April, doors open at 6pm
Startup Haus Cairo, Talaat Harb Street, Downtown Cairo
