Cairo Liberation Front (CLF) is the new wave of Egyptian wedding rave. Their approach on the electro chaabi sound has been featured in New York Times, The Guardian, Afropop Worldwide and Okay Africa. Maybe you’ve seen them perform at festivals as Amsterdam Dance Event, Dour and Best Kept Secret or in underground clubs throughout Europe.

CLF promotes the sonic Arabic revolution. Electro cha3bi comes from the popular neighborhoods of Cairo. Producers use cracked software; combine American hip-hop, eurohouse and Arabic rhythms. Like Omar Souleyman meeting Sean Paul and Aphex Twin at a wedding party. It has the live power of punk rock shows and early house parties. 

In their first year CLF produced mixtapes that premiered at WDR (German national radio), The Quietus, The Guardian and leading world music blogs like Afropop Worldwide, Generation Bass and Okay Africa. On stage Cairo Liberation Front performs with one DJ and one MC. Sometimes they are joined by belly dancers and other friends. The collective is known for their highly energetic live performances. In their first year they played more then 40 times in whole Europe, from underground clubs to big festivals.
