About The Event
In Co-Production with Festival du Monde Arabe de Montréal
When three of Egypt’s most acclaimed musicians join together in a unique group with an original acoustic inspiration, the result is HOH!
HOH is the comradely acronym of Hany Adel, also known as the leader of the group Wust el Balad and an actor of great renown, Ousso Lotfy, regarded as one of Egypt’s greatest guitarists and co-founder of the group Nagham Masry, and Hany El Dakkak, the singer of the leading alternative group Massar Egbari!
In this group that may be perceived as a living testament, synthesizing three great musical careers, the repertories of each of them are revisited with such simplicity that the resulting beauty is truly amazing. Sharing and proximity with the audience are vital elements of this high-calibre show: the group returns to standard items from the various folklores that have produced the grandeur of modern Arab music while adapting texts from the most famous poets of 20th-century Egypt, such as Salah Jahnin or Ahmed Fouad Negm.
