Nadah el Shazly is a producer, vocalist and sound artist from Cairo, Egypt. Her debut
album “Ahwar” radically reinvents the popular music of her homeland from the early
19th century and explores new sonic and harmonic frontiers. Using voice, field
recordings and instruments, she creates haunting sound pieces and songforms that
hijack the perception of time with their complex layers and dynamic structure.

Backing up her release with extensive worldwide touring through a solo set and a four-
piece band, El Shazly has been featured in local and international festivals including

Irtijal, Le Guess Who?, REWIRE, Best Kept Secret, Nusasonic, Marfa Myths, amongst
others. She continues to compose for film and visual art and has been featured on
compilations including Nashazphone’s This is Cairo Not the Screamers and
C.A.N.V.A.S.’ s Apocope.

Most recently El Shazly curated the Egyptian Leather Pavillion for Nyege Nyege
Festival 2020. She currently hosts a monthly show on Cashmere Radio, Live from Viper
Mountain, where she deep-dives into music that fascinates her.
