Sold out.

Event Details

8:30pm. Proof of Covid vaccination is required upon entry.

Maurice Louca, one of the most gifted musicians and composers on Egypt's thriving underground music scene, performs in support of his new album Saet El-Hazz (The Luck Hour), to be released via Sub Rosa and Northern Spy.

The full-length album draws voraciously on Arabic music, psychedelic folk, and free improv and the lead single “Bidayat (Holocene)” mesmerises with a feral groove centered around percussion, guitar and violin.

The title Saet el Hazz is a coded saying in Egypt to refer to a good time and usually implies a great deal of debauchery. “When you mention to someone that you’ve had a saet hazz, there are no questions asked. It is what it is.”
