Islam Chipsy & EEK
Concert & Closing Party
- Friday, 15 July 2016
- Haus der Berliner Festspiele
Islam Chipsy from Egypt and his band EEK, augmented by percussionists Khaled Mando and Mahmoud Refat, play ecstatic rhythms that will inspire the audience to collective muscle-movement. The sound developed by the keyboard virtuoso and his two companions originates in “electro chaabi” – a genre that comes from the poorer suburbs of Cairo and combines elements of popular Egyptian wedding music with electro sounds, mixing them into an unconventional and highly danceable style.
Followed by: DJ Johanna Knutsson (UFO Station Recordings)
