With this new release called Beatles Go Egypt, the four musicians tap into uncharted waters: They are underlining famous songs by The Beatles with Gnawa grooves and reinventing melodies in the maqam tradition. These ‚western‘ hits are paired with Jazz and Rock-influenced interpretations of songs by Egyptian luminary Abdel Wahab. A modern, border-free look on the popular music of the 60s from two different worlds, combined in one album.
