The Egyptian Jazz Projekt

Join the Harfoush Jazz Band for a night of Egyptian and American timeless songs at London’s hottest gallery, The Underdog London.

19 July 2018 | Visit website

The Harfoush Jazz Band offers a new jazz sound with a fusion of American and Egyptian 1940s and 1950s jazz featuring swing, ballad and latino versions of iconic Egyptian pop songs under a project titled The Egyptian Jazz Projekt.

The Harfoush Jazz Band was founded by Egyptian London-based jazz vocalist Ahmed Harfoush in October 2015, bringing a new sound to jazz through unique arrangements mainly inspired by 1950s Egyptian and American songs. The band’s newest project, ‘The Egyptian Jazz Projekt’ takes us back to the golden age of music with timeless classics by Egypt’s most popular performers such as Abdel Wahab and Abdel Halim skilfully blended with the music of American composers including Cole Porter, George Gershwin and Jerome Kern. The project was performed in Paris, Berlin, Cairo, Vienna and at Royal Albert Hall’s Elgar Room last month.

The Harfoush Jazz Band will perform The Egyptian Jazz Projekt at The Underdog Gallery, Arch 6, Crucifix Lane at London Bridge. Tickets are £20 in advance via Eventbrite and £25 on the door.
