تستعد فرقة إتش أو إتش لشد الرحال  إلى المملكة الأردنية، لإحياء أولى حفلاتها الغنائية ضمن فعاليات مهرجان موسيقى البلد، وذلك على مسرح الأوديون فى قلب العاصمة عمان، فى التاسعة والنصف مساء الثلاثاء 25 يونيو

تعد إتش أو إتش أكثر التجارب الغنائية لفتًا للانتباه فى ساحة الموسيقى البديلة مؤخرًا، والوحيدة التى بدأت “ناجحة” ولها قاعدة جماهيرية حتى قبل أن تتشكل، إذ تحتضن ثلاثة من أشهر أيقونات الموسيقى بمصر، هانى عادل من فرقة وسط البلد وهانى الدقاق من فرقة مسار إجباري، مع الموسيقى أوسو لطفي، وتعتمد على مزج خبرات الثلاثى الموسيقية معًا فى بروجكت واحد، وتمثل الفرقة الوسط الموسيقى المصرى فى المهرجان الأردنى بكونها الفرقة المصرية الوحيدة فى برمجة هذا العام

ويعد موسيقى البلد أحد أقدم المهرجانات الموسيقية فى الساحة الأردنية، يبرمج فعالياته مرة كل عامين، ويهدف بالأساس لتسليط الضوء على التجارب الموسيقية فى الداخل الأردنى وترويجها مع مزجها بخبرات من التجارب العربية البارزة فى العالم العربى، ليس فقط بالحفلات وإنما باللقاءات والجلسات الحوارية فيما بينهم، التى يتيحها برنامج “الخبراء” الذى يقدمه المهرجان هذا العام، بهدف إتاحة الفرصة للفنانين والموسيقيين والمهتمين بالمشهد الثقافى والموسيقى بلقاء نخبة من الخبراء والمنتجين وكبار الفنانين ومدراء المهرجانات الدولية لتناقش الاتجاهات الموسيقية الجديدة وتبادل الأفكار والرؤى الفنية

ويحتضن المهرجان فى دورته السادسة هذا العام باقة موسيقية منوعة من المذاقات الموسيقية العربية الجديدة، من مصر والجزائر ولبنان وتونس وفلسطين، تقدم على مسرحى الأوديون والمدرج الرومانى فى عمان، بداية من المشاركات الأردنية لفرق المربع وأيلول ويزن صرايرة وغائم جزئى والمشاركات العربية لكل من فرج سليمان ودى جام ومشاركة خاصة لفرقة تريو جبران فى ختام المهرجان، إضافة إلى الإطلالات الدولية لكل من المطربة اللبنانية تانيا صالح والتونسية غالية بنعلى وكايا تبسيان من كندا

مزيكا بسحر الساكسفون

“وحياتنا حفلة، ما إحنا اصلا فنانين”

جملة كافية لوصف توليفة نور بروجيكت، اللي بتجمع بين أمهر الموسيقيين في مصر. ٦ موسيقيين و ٦ آلات مختلفة بيطلعوا مزيكا ب تناغم ملوش مثيل و كمان بيصنعوا أغانيهم بنفسهم.

نور بروجيكت فرقة مصرية مستقلة تم تأسيسها في القاهرة عام ٢٠١٣ و اللي أسسها نور عاشور عازف الساكسفون المشهور وضم معاه موسيقيين محترفين بخلفيات موسيقية مختلفة زي، اوسو لطفي (جيتار)، وائل بدراوى (كيبورد)، محمد نبيل (إيقاع)، فادي بدر (قانون)، مراون زكي (درامز)، و دة علشان يخلقوا حالة موسيقية مش بس تخلي اللي يسمعها يستمتع، لا دة كمان تلمس قلبه.

لو هنتكلم عن نوع المزيكا اللي بيقدموها، صعب جدا نحددها بنوع معين. الخليط الموسيقي اللي بيقدموه و اللي بيجمع بين أنواع موسيقية كتير زي، الجاز والفانك و كمان بأجواء ثقافية مختلفة زي الشرقي والأفريقي والغربي، بيثبت قد ايه مدى الموهبة و الإحترافية اللي يمتلكوها و كمان مدى طموحهم.

الفكرة من تأسيس الفرقة بشكل عام، هو مش بس انهم يخلوا الجمهور يسمع مزيكتهم ،لا كمان يحسوا بيها ويخلقوا وسيلة للتواصل بينهم من خلال كلمات ملهمة تشجعهم على إكتشاف تفاصيل جديدة فى الحياة، لأن الكلمات مش بتعكس توجهات الفرقة بل تجارب بيعيشها اغلب الناس.

الفرقة شاركت في العديدة من المهرجانات برة و جوة مصر، و في الفترة الأخيرة اطلقوا البوم “أول ألبوم” و اللي من اسمه هو اول ألبوم بيقدموه، و من الأغاني الجميلة فيه أغنية “الروتين.

Egyptian guitarist Ousso Lotfy releases album ‘Khashab & Kahraba’

‘Khashab & Kahraba’ is a literal translation of ‘Wood & Electricity’, describing acoustic and electric guitar types

Successful Egyptian guitarist Ousso Lotfy has announced the release of his new album, ‘Khashab & Kaharaba’, urging fans to listen to it on various internet platforms, thanking dozens of artists for their support.

The 15-track album is “an Arabic jazz fusion album experience recorded with a diverse selection of guitars. Most of the compositions are recorded and arranged twice, exploring different arrangements and guitars,” Lotfy stated.

“‘Khashab & Kahraba’ is a literal translation of ‘Wood & Electricity’. In the Egyptian music scene it is a reference to electric and acoustic guitars and is the first question you are asked when you identify yourself as a guitarist,” the artist said, adding: “Ninety-nine percent of the guitars are made of wood while all recordings are done with mics, preamps and mixers, hence the electricity. So basically, everything comes down to ‘Khashab & Kahraba.'”

The founder of SOS Music Festival (2006-2010) and Ewsal bel3araby (2016), Ousso is an icon of the country’s alternative music scene, co-founding successful bands like Nagham Masry and HOH (with Wust El-Balad’s Hani Adel and Hani El-Dakak of Masar Egbari), as well as being a member of Eftekasat and several other bands.

“When composing a track, in my head I always imagine a vast variety of options, so I decided to experiment with some of it in this album,” Lotfy said.

Lotfy, who started recording the album in 2013 while at Berklee Valencia Studios, put the project on hold for four years due to his engagement in various projects before finally resuming at his studio in Cairo.

Lotfy thanked dozens of artists who collaborated and supported his album at Berklee Valencia and in Cairo, offering special thanks to Lebanese bassist Andre Segone “for encouragement, support, the love and passion of music, and the incredible bass lines in this album.”

Each track of ‘Khashab & Kahraba’ is visually designed by the founders of artistic retail store Earth, artists Mohamed Aref and Hoda Ismail, who expressed delight in participating in the album.

My love and passion for music started at a very young age. I remember creating schedules for all the cool concerts taking place and save for the ones I wanted to attend. One concert I remember very well was the very last S.O.S festival, where I first saw the leading guitarist in the region, Ousso Lotfy, performing with Eftekasat.

Being the fan that I am, Ousso Lotfy releasing his latest album ‘Khashab W Kahraba’ was great news for me, and I have to say, you must check it out!

‘Khashab W Kahraba’ is an Arabic jazz fusion album experience that was recorded with a diverse selection of guitars. The album’s composition is recorded and arranged twice, exploring different arrangements and guitars. Ousso started recording the album back in 2013 during his masters in Valencia, but paused for four years because of different projects he was working on, and finally decided to finish his album this year.

Ousso is the mastermind behind ‘Ewsal Bel 3araby’, the most complete Arabic platform for aspiring and accomplished musicians. He’s also a part of HOH band with Massar Egbari’s Hany El Dakak and Wust El Balad’s Hany Adel. Ousso is the strongest link between the independent and mainstream music scenes in Egypt.

He was and is part of some of the best independent music bands like Nagham Masry, Eftekasat, and he also performed alongside the best musicians in the mainstream scene like Mohamed Mounir and Amr Diab.

Ousso Lotfy is perhaps the most in demand guitarist in the Middle East. Aside from touring with the biggest pop stars in the region he’s also been integral in building the Egyptian music scene since the mid ‘90s. Beyond being a guitarist, Ousso is also a composer, producer, sound engineer and founder of online tutorial platform Ewsal Bel3araby.

Ousso finally released his new album Khashab w Kahraba (Translated: Wood & Electricity) after six years of working on it. The Arabic jazz fusion experience’s concept lies behind its name, as every song in it was recorded twice, once on an acoustic guitar (wood), and the other on an electric guitar (electricity).

OUSSO LOTFY // EWSAL BEL3ARABY

Ousso Lotfy is perhaps the most in-demand guitarist in the Middle East, having played with the biggest pop stars in the region. He’s also co-founder of Nagham Masry, a member of Eftekasat and one third of rock supergroup, HOH, alongside Hany Adel from Wust El Balad and Hani el Dakkak from Massar Egbari.

His legendary status as a musician aside, Lotfy was the orchestrator of breakthrough underground festival, Save Our Sound (SOS), which gave hundreds of upcoming artists from all across the country a platform to perform in front of audiences of thousands. He has always had his heart set on creating a foundation for the Egyptian music scene to flourish and, this year, he has made even more headway.

How many talented young Egyptian musicians have been forced to put down their instruments because of pressure from their parents to ‘get a real job’, or because there was simply nowhere to perform? How many Egyptian kids could be the next ‘big thing’, but never get the opportunity to learn an instrument at all?

“There are a lot of contradictions,” he says. “If a regular person wants to be a musician, their ambition is ignored and belittled. But with a famous musician, there’s no judgement of the ambitions that led to their success,” he continues. “This society and culture do not give importance to the arts. They do not regard teaching music as a priority.”

And so Lotfy went about creating Ewsal Bel3araby, a first-of its-kind online educational platform that now has an archive of thousands of Arabic tutorial videos featuring himself and famous master musician friends providing a huge variety of lessons and jamming videos. “A lot of kids I meet approach me and are very thankful. They tell me that, without the platform, it would’ve been really hard to learn a particular instrument or particular song. That’s the goal: to help people find their dream, their calling.”
