Episode 94 – Egyptian Rebel Tunes

Welcome back to another episode of The Rebel Beat! This episode is reminiscent of the old format of this show, 2 hours of live radio, done at our beloved CKUT radio in Montreal during a residency Aaron was doing for the Montreal Sessions.

Our special guest on the program is one of Egypt’s top studio guitarists and rebel musicians, Weka Soliman. You’ll definitely be hearing more about Weka’s story in the weeks to come on this show, but for now, enjoy this episode as he guides us through Egypt’s vast world of underground music.

Iraqi-Montrealer artist Narcy’s new album “World War Free” just dropped on Tuesday, and it’s amazing. We’ve been loving this guy since his days as part of the Arab hip-hop ensemble Euphrates, and his craft is only getting better and better. The new album features contributions from Palestinian poet Suheir Hamad, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, and beat production by Montreal’s very own Sandhill. Check out this short video on the making of the album!
And listen to the first single here!
Expect to be hearing lots from Narcy on The Rebel Beat in the coming months!
