Hamza Namira: Hailed as the 'new Sayed Darwish', Hamza Namira is one of the most celebrated faces of modern Arabic music. A songwriter, singer, and multi-instrumentalist from Egypt, Hamza has become a luminous expression of his homeland’s resilience and ambition. Emerging as a major public figure, most notably since the Egyptian revolution of 2011, he uses his work to explore and engage with the prominent social issues of today. Well aware of a range of dilemmas his generation is facing, he addresses them in an emotive and inclusive manner, weaving through Egyptian traditional and folk music, pop, rock and jazz along the way. He will be debuting his new album 'Hateer Min Tany' (translates as 'Rising Again') with his Cairo-based ensemble on 12 May, 2018 at the Cadogan Hall, 5 Sloane Terrace, London SW1X 9DQ.
