CAIRO (CelebrityAccess) — Egyptian singer, producer & composer Nadah El Shazly announced plans to hit the road in April for her first full tour of North America.
Produced in conjunction with Montreal-based booking agency Heavy Trip, the North American segment of the tour kicks off on April 18th with a show at Burdock in Toronto with 19 additional shows spread across Canada and the US.
The tour segment wraps on Montreal on June 12th. She will be backed on select dates by Thierry Amar (Godspeed You! Black Emperor) on double bass along with saxophonist / drummer / synth player Devin Brahja Waldman (Patti Smith, William Parker, and Thurston Moore, Brahja, etc.).
She shares the bill on other dates with Danish Punk Rock band Iceage.
Both before and after the tour, Shazly is set to perform at a string of shows in Europe, including the Borderline Festival in Athens on April 7th and the Copenhagen Jazz Festival on July 11th.
From her first professional gig covering hits by the Misfits with a local punk band, Shazly has moved on to experimental electronica while making a name for herself in Cairo’s underground music scene. She released her debut album Ahwer (Arabic for Marshland) in 2017.
