Youssra El Hawary and the Band are producing their debut album, and they need your help.
It is safe to say that Youssra El Hawary is one of the most talented musicians to recently emerge out of Egypt's burgeoning underground music scene. Singing and playing the accordion, her work with her band has been making waves through musical communities both locally and regionally. Through their numerous online releases and countless performances, they have been able to gain support from admirers from countries as far apart as Tunisia and Jordan.
In their latest efforts - through a music video posted on Youtube - they have been trying to direct their audience towards an online crowdfunding campaign on IndieGogo.com. They are looking to gather money to produce their first album, where they have announced initial plans to fly in music producers from abroad, gather in an artistic environment to come up with the material for the new album, rent a professional studio to conduct the recording sessions, get the very talented Adham Zidan to mix the tracks, and after mastering, they plan on printing the album on CDs (where donors would get a free copy), and finally plan an album tour.
We believe that Youssra El Hawary and the Band are some of the most talented musicians this country possesses, and in that manner, we are convinced that donating to their campaign is a truly worthy cause. Check out the video they released to promote the campaign below.
