MARSM Presents: Cairokee
31st Oct 2018
The name Cairokee expresses the bands irrefutable connection with their Egyptian audiences, combining Cairo & Karaoke to symbolize their “singing along” with Cairo. Yet after over 15 years of performing and 4 albums, their captivating energy, creativity and humility has ensured that it is now Cairo that sings along with them.
Articulating the many elements of contemporary Egyptian society that drive their generation, their music balances rock and spacious electronica with hints of pop and chaabi. Their anthemic calls for freedom, self-reflection and societal changes are an innate reflection of their phenomenal song-writing abilities and fan base, yet are ones that have not always resonated with authorities back home.
As part of their anticipated autumn UK tour, Cairokee will be coming to Liverpool/Manchester/Birmingham to play a high-voltage show at the Philharmonic’s Music Room/Ruby Lounge/Hare and Hounds.
Cairokee’s 2018 UK tour is supported by Arts Council England.
