Coming up in April, MARSM UK presents a captivating double bill of some of the Middle East’s most trailblazing underground musicians. From dystopian poetry to bass-heavy hip-hop beats and stripped down Egyptian dance tracks, this showcase celebrates the contemporary musical projects making headlines and pushing the boundaries of the alternative Arabic music scene. LEKHFA The brainchild of Maryam Saleh, Maurice Louca and Tamer Abu Ghazaleh, three legendary musicians who came of age in 1990s Cairo. Decades later, each having paved their way through the alternative Arabic music scene, have united to create a stunning new album that gives birth to an off-kilter sound of beats, grit and resistance. A rapturous combination of extraordinary musical talent and creativity, their stunning works intertwine around the dystopian poems of their contemporary Mido Zoheir, one of the most celebrated Egyptian poets of their generation.

Tamer Nafar Founding member of the legendary Palestinian rap trio DAM Palestine, Tamer’s cunning solo show is a beat-defying homage to his thoughts, life and inspirations, and a cleverly defined extension of his hip-hop roots and Palestinian heritage. His trinity of wit, dedication and unmistakable swagger have helped paved an impressive path for homegrown Arabic hip-hop not just to flourish, but to travel far beyond his hometown of Lyd. Rich Mix London is wheelchair accessible. Lekhfa’s UK tour has been made possible with the support of Arts Council England.

It's time to get excited, Lekhfa are about to head out for their tour. Turn out to see the best of the Alternative Egyptian Electronic scene with three of the most iconic trailblazers, who've been molding and pushing the boundaries of the alternative music scene for decades - Maryam Saleh, Tamer Abu Ghazaleh & Maurice Louca.
