The long-awaited second album by The Dwarfs Of East Agouza. Hailing from the Agouza district of Cairo, Egypt, this brilliant trio consists of Alan Bishop (acoustic bass and alto sax), Maurice Louca (keyboards and drum machine) and Sam Shalabi (electric guitar). Following their acclaimed first album 'Bes', this long play is composed of two hypnotic journeys: 'Rat's Dont Eat Synthesizers' and 'Ringa Mask Koshary' which was recorded in Cairo in September of 2015.
Mesmerizing electric guitar parts, frenetic beats, both supported by the deep sound of Alan's acoustic bass create a magical Egyptian soundscape. The vinyl version is coming with a beautiful hot-foil stamped sleeve that magnifies the red metallic rats and a wonderful printed inner sleeve. Includes download code.
