  • Theater techies find the ‘Alternative Solution’

    BY DALIA BASIOUNY Cairo Stunned by news that Rawabet Theater, the only affordable independent performance space in downtown Cairo was shut down, two theatre technicians decided to take matters into their own hands. As technicians Saber El Sayed and Mido Sadeq knew how to turn empty, unequipped spaces into full-fledged performance venues. Rawabet’s abrupt closure in February for lack of funding triggered the ingenious idea to transform The Factory, a space run by the TownHouse Gallery, and debut an arts festival they dubbed “Alternative Solution”.

    Yasmine Hamdan in times of Ramadan

    BY CHITRA KALYANI Cairo: That we live in surreal, schizophrenic times has never been more evident. Picture this: the first Ramadan season in the era of Mohamed Morsi, and in this desert that is Egypt, appears a mirage of shimmering sensuality: Yasmine Hamdan. The befuddlement was not simply caused by witnessing two young men who had smuggled in rum-flavored Coca-Cola at Geneina Theater on this Thursday night in the dry season of Ramadan; the performance too carried an air of Bacchic revelry as men and (some) women thronged around the Lebanese artiste, eager to swing and sing along. “Unique” said…

    Cairokee matures with third album

    Cairokee's third album marks a growth in the band’s sound.

    BY MOHAMMED YAHIA Cairo: Egyptian music outfit Cairokee has come a long way from their underground roots. What was once a young band playing out small gigs for a limited pool of fans at Sawy Culture Wheel can now fill big venues packed with thousands singing along to their music. The band’s third album, “Wana Ma’a Nafsy A’ed” (While I’m sitting Here By Myself), released last month, marks a growth in the band’s sound. Since their last record, the everyday life in Egypt has becoming far more complicated, with a lot of confusion and lack of clarity seeping across all…

    An underground music pioneer

    BY CHITRA KALYANI Cairo: As early as age 12, Lebanese musician Zeid Hamdan gave up the dream of being Jim Morrison and, instead, decided to be himself. His original compositions and collaborations rose to fame with SoapKills — a project with a friend who shares his last name, Yasmine Hamdan, now a solo sensation. For die-hard SoapKills fans, here is some good news early in the article: the Hamdan duo still produces music together. When SoapKills dissolved in 2006 after a decade-long partnership, Zeid Hamdan entered into musical conversation, as he calls it, with other bands and projects. Among these…
