Revolutionary Egyptian rock band Cairokee, have announced they’ll be playing a “high-voltage” show at the Liverpool Philharmonic Music Room on 1st November as part of their anticipated UK tour for Autumn 2018.

Presented by MARSM in partnership with Liverpool Arab Arab Festival, the event is part of Liverpool Arab Arts Festival’s enhanced musical programme for 2018, supported by Liverpool City Council Festival Enhancement Funding.

Articulating the many elements of contemporary Egyptian society that drive their generation, Cairokee have played a pivotal role in developing and pushing the boundaries of the alternative music scene in Egypt. Their music balances rock and spacious electronica with hints of pop, rap and chaabi (Egypt’s most iconic popular music style).

The band will be supported by celebrated Palestinian spoken word artist Dana Dajani.

Cairokee’s UK tour is supported by Arts Council England.

The band will play the following venues on their UK tour:

30/10 Birmingham – Hare and Hounds ft. Dana Dajani

31/10 Manchester – The Ruby Lounge ft. Rafeef Ziadah

01/11 Liverpool – Philharmonic Music Room ft. Dana Dajani
