One of Egypt's most popular independent bands puts on a huge show at the Library of Alexandria ending 2012 on a great note for music in the country
Alexandria's biggest independent music band put on a big show for a diverse crowd on 30 December to end 2012 on a positive revolutionary note.
Massar Egbari had a line up filling two hours of mostly their oriental rock originals with a few covers of Arabic classics. The crowd went wild with the band's most famous hits such as "Hawy", "Mersal Habibty" and "Ekra El-Khabar" not to mention with the band's version of the classic "El-Leila El-Kebeira."
The band's lead singer Hany announced towards the end of the concert that they would be releasing their new album by the start of 2013.
