HOH, a collaborative project between musicians Hany Adel, Ousso Lotfy, and Hany El-Dakkak, will come to El-Sawy Culturewheel on Saturday, 25 June.

The project, whose name is comprised of the initials of three the artists (Hany, Ousso, Hany), sees them perform each other’s songs albeit with fresh and novel musical arrangements.

The three indie musicians initiated HOH in 2015 and has since performed together in a number of Cairo venues.

Adel is best known as the guitarist and vocalist of Wust El-Balad band, which was founded in 1999 and is considered one of the most popular bands in the Egyptian contemporary music scene. Since then, Adel has established himself as a singer, composer, guitarist and more recently as an actor, his last performance being in the star-studded film Hepta, an adaptation of Mohamed Sadek's best-selling novel Hepta: The Last Lecture, which was released last April.

Hany El-Dakkak is the guitarist and lead vocalist of Egyptian band Massar Egbari, which was founded in 2005 and has since carved a place for itself in the Egyptian music scene, presenting oriental Arabic rock tunes fused with jazz and Western sounds.

Ousso Lotfy is a guitarist and composer and co-founder of Nagham Masry band and the SOS Music Festival. Lotfy’s repertoire includes collaborations with Eftekasat band, as well as singers Mohamed Mounir, Angham and Amr Diab.

Saturday, 25 June, 10pm
