Egyptian famous indie artists Massar Egbari, Wust El-Balad, H.O.H, and Abu joined forces in a full-house concert that was held at the Marquee Theatre in New Cairo on Friday.



The four-hour show kicked off Marquee’s ‘Non-Stop Music’ season, which will include a series of concerts throughout the summer.

The concert started with an hour-long performance from H.O.H — a formation that combines Hany Adel of Wust El-Balad, Ousso Lotfy of Nagham Masry, and Hany El-Dakkak of Massar Egbari — introducing some of the trio’s favourite hits like ‘Etneen Sabahan’(‘2am’), ‘El-Bahr Mamdoud’ (‘The Sea is Wide’), ‘Arrabily’ (‘Get Close to Me’), and other songs.

H.O.H also played their new song ‘El-Bo’d Wel-Masafat’ (‘Distance and Spaces’) for the first time.

Wust El-Balad then took to the stage, entertaining the audience with a selection from their four albums — ‘Wust El-Balad’ (2007), ‘Rubabekya’ (2011), ‘Karakib’ (2014), and ‘Bantalony El-Jeans’ (2018), including memorised hits like ‘Shams El-Nahar’ (‘Sun of the Day’) and ‘Antika’ (‘Antique’).

Up next was Abu — most known for his smash hit ‘3 Daqat’ (‘Three Heartbeats’) — who played a number of his latest songs, including some of his upcoming new summer releases.

After that came Massar Egbari, who performed their latest release ‘Nos El-Hagat’ (‘Half of Things’), as well as a selection from their three albums, including ‘Tokaa We Tkoom’ (‘You Fall and Rise’), ‘Eera El-Khabar’ (‘Read the News’), ‘Sabahek’ (‘Your Morning’), Nehayat El-Hakawy (‘Ends of Stories’), ‘Cherophobia’, and ‘Matloub Habib’ (‘A Lover is Wanted’).

The show concluded with a jovial combined performance of Wust El-Balad’s ‘Ah Yalally’, featuring H.O.H and Massar Egbari.
