Described as the ‘new Sayed Darwish’, songwriter, singer, and multi-instrumentalist Hamza Namira has become one of the leading music figures across Egypt and the Middle East. A luminous expression of resilience and ambition, Namira uses his work to explore and engage with the wider social issues of today. With his unique combination of Egyptian contemporary pop and traditional folk, rock and powerful ballads, he has sold out concerts in Alexandria, Cairo and London, while also performing internationally and across the Arab World.
Releasing his fourth album Hateer Min Tany in 2018, Dari Ya Albi, one of the most popular singles, has reached over 150 million views on YouTube. Since 2016, he has presented the highly popular TV programme ‘Remix’ on Alaraby TV, of which many songs have become regional earworms and audience favourites. The spearheading project collaborates and remixes songs with some of the Middle East’s most exciting acts (47Soul, Autostrad, Zap Tharwat) as well working with international flamenco, gnawa and folk musicians. An unparalleled artist and creative, Hamza Namira’s vivid shows and collaborations have made him a regional icon whose message remains a vital soundtrack to generations both young and old.
