Game On: Egypt vs Saudi Arabia

Yes, I missed the match but I did pick you out some music. Let’s go.

For Egypt, we have the fab feminist art collective Bint Al-Masarwa with ساكتة ومش ساكتة which translates as ‘I was silent and not silent’. This is compelling music, combining traditional vocal styles, crunchy guitars, an insistent melody and a bit of a rap breakdown. 

For Saudi Arabia, producer Majedalesa gives us Hwages (Concerns) in which three semi-anonymous female vocalists sing ‘May men go extinct, they give us psychiatric diseases’ whilst having a rare old time in bright frocks.
