We've collected a list of local music concerts that are live streaming while you're quarantined at home. Think Tom Cruise in Risky Business, but more Arab.
Despite the nationwide cancellation of concerts, our lyrical hearts won’t go down without a fight, and we know yours won’t either. So we’ve constructed this list of local musical live streams to get our dose of rhythm from the safety of our own homes. Turn the volume up.
DISCO MISR // Dynamic duo Disco Misr is going live on their YouTube channel at 10pm tonight (Thursday March 19th). Tune in to bring the nightclub to your doorstep.
QUARANTINI SESSIONS BY CJC // This Friday March 20th at 9 pm Cairo Jazz Club will be streaming the first in their new #QuarantiniSessions. We may no longer be able to bop together in their downtown venue, but we can certainly feel the beat together. Keep checking their pages to find out when future sessions will be streamed.
SCENENOISE // Our sister site, Scene Noise, will be taking to IGTV every single day with a diverse array of underground artists, including fuzzylittlebrain and Wass. Just because we’re at home doesn’t mean we can’t keep up with the next new thing. For more music in the time of Corona go follow @scenenoise and keep it logged on to www.scenenoise.com
ROOM ART SPACE // Cairo music venue ROOM Art Space & Cafe is kicking off daily facebook live performances by various artists tonight (March 19th). Stay tuned to their social media pages for exact timings (to be announced).
ANGHAMI // Every single day, our fav music streaming app Anghami will be hosting a different artist. The likes of Mike Massey, Joe Ashkar, Adonis, and Rahaf of Guitara will be streaming live through Anghami’s Instagram page.
ZIYAD SAHHAB // Every night at 7 PM, Ziyad Sahhab takes to his Facebook to put on a show for his fans. If you don’t have a date tonight (and you ought not given the circumstances), Sahhab may just be the person you want to ‘see’.
MASSAR EGBARI // Sometime during the month of March - exact date to be determined - Arab rock band Massar Egbari will take to YouTube to do a live show for a home-bodied crowd.
TAMER ASHOUR // Tamer Ashour | تامر عاشور live-streamed concert date is yet to be determined, but we’re hyped anyway.
