Nadah El Shazly (EG) // Copenhagen Jazz Festival 2022

Dreamy Arabian vocals, jazzy improvisation and modern electronics

One of the leading voices from Cairo’s vibrating experimental music scene returns to ALICE and Copenhagen Jazz Festival. Expect a smooth blend of dreamy Arabian vocals, jazzy improvisation and modern electronics, when Nadah El Shazly performs with her quartet at an open air concert at Onkel Dannys Plads.

Please note: the concert takes place at the outdoor stage at Onkel Dannys Plads

Producer and vocalist Nadah El Shazly, known for her fresh and fearless performances, is a prominent and captivating voice in the electronic music underworld of Cairo, also counting artists such as Dwarfs of East Agouza and Maurice Louca. The projects all combine roots from traditional Arabien music with modern jazz, electronics and experimental rock. El Shazly startet on the Egyptian punk scene before she started experimenting with electronic music. As a soloist, she debuted with the highly acclaimed album “Ahwar” in 2017. An album that both radically reinvents the popular music of her homeland and explores new sonic and harmonic frontiers. Using voice, field recordings and instruments she creates haunting sound pieces and song forms that hijack your perception of time. 

We already once had the pleasure to present Nadah El Shazly at ALICE during the Copenhagen Jazz Festival in 2019, when she was playing an otherworldly solo show. Now she’s returning with her quartet, playing an open air show at Onkel Dannys Plads. The concert is a part of Copenhagen Jazz Festival 2022.

Copenhagen Jazz Festival 2022 takes place from June 24 – July 10 at 120 venues. See the full line-up at
