This Thursday, 16th May, Cairo Jazz Club will host two of the Middle East’s most prolific Oriental Rock bands. Opening up the night are the politically-driven Pressure Pot. Positioning themselves as the voice of a socially, economically and sexually suppressed generation (which couldn’t be more relevant, considering the current state of Syria), their performance is bound to move you in ways you didn’t even think were possible. It’s set to be an exciting night for Cairene rockers as, not only are Pressure Pot certain to blow you away with their Progressive Rock sounds and hard-hitting lyrics, it will also be the official album launch for their upcoming release, Tanjaret Daght (literal translation: Pressure Pot), which you can get your hands on at the gig.

Continuing the night of Oriental-Rock synergy will be Massar Egbari. This incredible, four-piece Alexandrian Rock collective always put on a hell of a show, having gained popularity and showmanship experience, touring the world with their melodic madness. Through their music, Massar Egbari are constantly poking fun at societal norms and trends, making them a firm favourite among rockers and rockettes (we just made that word up) in Egypt and beyond.

Look out for our interview with Massar Egbari tomorrow but in the meantime, you can book your spot at Cairo Jazz Club for this unforgettable night on
