Dwarfs of East Agouza

The Dwarfs of East Agouza is an instrumental trio composed of Maurice Louca (Alif, Bikya, Karkhana), Sam Shalabi (Land of Kush, Shalabi Effect) and Alan Bishop (Sun City Girls, The Invisible Hands, Alvarius B.). Having formed in 2012 while living in the same apartment building in Cairo's Agouza district, the group jammed late into the night to create mesmerizing and at times frenetic improvised pieces, offering a glimpse into the North African, West African and Krautrock influences - amongst many others - that propel their material.

Two Or The Dragon

Two or The Dragon is the Beirut-based electro-acoustic noise duo of Abed Kobeissy and Ali Hout. They recreate and animate urban soundscapes by layering various hand percussions with the processed sound of the Buzuq (levantine long-necked lute).
