– Last Hishek Bishek of the year! –
Paying homage to the Middle East’s popular music history, Hishek Bishek UK – هشك بشك is a pulsing club night dedicated to the region’s vibrant sonic (sub)cultures. From the synthed-out 90’s dancefloor hits, to bass-heavy Palestinian electronic dabke and the newest releases from Cairo’s underground, Hishek Bishek has become a vibrant staple in London’s late-night club scene.
Now in its 16th edition, Hishek Bishek has become a household name revelling in the iconic traditional sounds of darbuka, percussion and percussive rhythms. Returning to East London for the last time this year, we’re ready to get down with our regulars, and welcome new faces and music lovers. To our regulars: ‘Ahlan Wa Sahlan!’, to anyone curious enough to attend: welcome to the Arabic party you wish you knew about earlier.
