Whilst 47Soul combine dabke, the traditional Palestinian street music and dance, with deep electronic beats mixed with sounds of the Middle East, the Cairo Liberation Front are electro cha3bi pioneers coming from the popular neighbourhoods of Cairo. Using cracked software, they make a heady mix of Arabic rhythms, American hip-hop and European dance music.
