Wust El Balad
Their story is as compelling as the music itself.
Their first appearance as Wust El Balad
was at Al Mashrabeya Gallery, followed by their first paid performance at the Berlitz Language Center. Ever since that moment, Wust El Balad was a regular performer at all galleries, cultural centers, bars, special events and hotels, and even abroad.
Their vision then was to reach the average person that can't afford hearing them in bars or galleries.
And so they were the first band to play in the Egyptian street, experiencing one of the most amazing concerts, playing in Al Alfi Street to the local community during
the French festival "Les Francais aiment l'Egypte".
Wust El Balad, an amazing blend of sounds, combining traditional Arabic music with a modern and western twist, is successful in making their music as accessible as possible, not just in Cairo, but beyond. Wust El Balad means real world music in the best sense of the word.
If any band in Cairo managed to prove that underground bands can have a strong presence between a mainstream market; it's Wust El Balad. Since 1999, the band has been performing, touring, composing, and getting even bigger. Their music has been also featured in some Egyptians films by great directors, like Khairy Beshara. Wust El Balad became a music icon all around Cairo.
