Fayrouz Karawya

Bio

Fayrouz Karawya is an Egyptian singer, songwriter and record producer. She started off in 2007 together with a band based in Cairo. They had a series of live concerts around the country. In 2007, she was one of three finalists for Monte-Carlo Doualiya Prize in the Middle East, held in Amman, Jordan.

In 2011, she was granted “The Young Arab Creators Grant” by Al Mawred Al Thaqafy, the leading cultural foundation in the Arab World, in the music section. Later in 2012, she released her first album titled 'Barra Menny' (Outside of Me). The album did very well and became the best selling album for five successive weeks in Cairo Virgin Megastore. Her love songs address love conflicts and try to give a multi-dimensional picture of vibrant relationships. Her target is to dig deep into the essence of love and emotion.

In 2014, she finished her second project 'Eskimo' and this saw her fusing electronic music with Arabic lyrics and melodies. She was chosen to collaborate with the pronounced American jazz singer KJ Denhert during her tour in Egypt in International Jazz Day; under the auspices of the American Embassy in Cairo. In 2015, she released her third album titled 'Albak Zeham' (Crowded Heart). On this album, she introduced African/Middle Eastern music to world music trends. She delved into local music of Egypt, west and southern Africa, re-visiting their inspiring music scales and rich beats, and blending them softly with jazzy arrangements.

Her band offers a unique live experience, where tributaries from Egyptian Sha’abi (local music), folk, oriental themes fuse in the realms of jazz and world music.

Her Afro-Arab struggles, stories and histories are all eminent in her music and voice.
