I take my accordion and sing about what concerns me

News


Last Saturday marked the end of our online crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. Together - with you - we achieved 51% of the funds we need to make the album. Sales for our offline campaign is about €1200 till today. We are truly happy to have gone through this experience, and feel very touched by all the help, support, and enthusiasm we've received from all of you. Our thanks are endless to everyone who contributed to our campaign, to everyone who shared our posts, and to every journalist who helped in spreading the word about our project. We really hope that our experience will help to present a new method of Music Production in Egypt. A method based on community support and audience involvement in producing the music they love. Right now - and because of every contribution from you- we are able to record, mix and print the album soon. We will keep trying to find other ways to complete the funding and make the album with the standards that we've been wishing for all along. Thank you again and again. We will work hard to create an album that we can all be proud of at the end.

You are making a change!

Be the Producer: Youssra El Hawary's First Album


Youssra


I was born on the 9th of October, 1983 which made me a hesitant, passionate libra. I am an accordionist, composer, songwriter, singer and actress. One day in 2011 I posted four songs on Soundcloud, then with the support of my friends my first concert took place in 2012. I started performing only with my accordion at first. My songs are telling stories about my life in Cairo, whether I wrote them myself or collaborated with other poets who inspired me. People seemed to be enjoying my concerts. But it's when I released my first music video El Soor, I suddenly received a lot of attention, which was a little bit scary but It pushed me to give more time and effort to my music. Later on I founded the band and we have worked together on the arrangement of my songs and developed the music. Since then we have been playing concerts and performing in festivals in Egypt as well as abroad. Right now we are working on our FIRST ALBUM which will be released soon.
