Nadah El-Shazly

Nadah ShazlyShazly dabbled in various performance projects since debuting as an 18-year-old lead vocalist for a punk band who played Misfits covers at venues like Zamalek’s Sawy Culture Wheel. In 2011, she was offered a nightly gig at the Holiday Inn and began pursuing her musical ambitions professionally. She performed in the lobby, accompanied by a jazz cover band. It makes sense that Shazly’s beginnings were in jazz as her vocal quality is soulful and raspy, convincingly channeling both Egyptian singers of the 1890s and American R&B singers of the 1940s and 50s.
