Maurice Louca (موريس لوقا) is one of the most important uprising artists in the alternative and electronic music scene across the Arab world today.
“Al-Mashoub” (المسحوب), meaning “Idiot”, is taken from his second album “Benhayyi Al-Baghbaghan” (Salute the Parrot). It is a smart mix of Egyptian dance pop, with southerns sound themes and a lot of sampling from contributing musicians. Eloquant representative to the sound of Cairo.
You can stream “Salute the Parrot” in its entirety on Bandcamp.
