One thing is absolutely certain: you never know what to expect from an Hendrik Hegray concert.
Egyptian music lovers were in for a treat on that 2013 evening.
Full recording of the complete concert.
Artwork based on the original flyer for the event.
A live recording in Egypt brings to mind two reference points:
- the Sun Ra Arkestra playing to an unsuspecting crowd at Hartmut Geerken’s place
- the Jean-Michel Jarre Millenium extravaganza in front of the pyramids.
It’s hard to explain, but I can somehow feel the influence of both these concerts in Popol Gluant’s recording.
He’ll be mad at me for saying that: his music never showed any trace of other people’s influence, or anything that’s ever been heard before.
You’ve guessed it: I’m just trying to attract the JMJ fan base. [publisher's note]
Recorded live at 1000 Copies, downtown Cairo on March 8th 2013.
