Rock [Beats] Chaabi - El Morabba3 & Islam Chipsy

Rock [Beats] Chaabi - El Morabba3 & Islam Chipsy: Challenging the lines between Rock, electronica, beats and Chaabi, this double bill brings together the euphoric sounds of Jordan’s El Morabba3 with the enthralling pulse of Egypt’s Islam Chipsy. Vital players in the urban Chaabi scene, Islam Chipsy are at the forefront of what has traditionally been regarded as Egyptian working-class celebration music. With their success now rippling far beyond the backstreets of their native Cairo, their charismatically frantic sets have remolded the appeal of live Chaabi performance. Whilst the Jordanian-Palestinian band El Morabba3 offer groundbreaking sounds, their artistic journey has seen them become one of the leading socially and politically relevant bands reviving the Arab independent music scene, solidified since the release of their second album Taraf Al Kheit in 2016.​ Taking place on 23 September, 2017 at Rich Mix, 35-47 Bethnal Green Road, London E1 6LA.
