Shahira Welnas Alkhatira is an indie music project from Cairo, led by Shahira Kamal herself, though she prefers to see the group as a collective project. Starting originally as an acoustic formation in October 2016, they now play in full band formation around Cairo, occasionally in Alexandria, in radio shows and TV programs. Their songs cover the topics of romance and social commentary, with a distinct overtone of humor, a lightheartedness that is reflected in their live performances. We caught up with them ahead of their performance at Azhar Park as part of D-CAF’s 2018 launch, and talked about their music and the scene in Cairo.
