Massar Egbari is a band formed in 2005 in Alexandria, Egypt and presents a kind of alternative Egyptian music, mixing rock, jazz and blues with Oriental music. As its name means “Compulsory Track”, it’s intended to reflect how society forces people to lead their lives in a particular way. The band presents music and songs talking about social problems. Love is not the main concern although it represents a part of their songs.
They performed in many cities around the world such as Malta (Malta Arts Festival in 2007), Turkey ( Barisa Rock Festival in Istanbul), Italy ( Biennale of Young Artists from Europe and the Mediterranean in Bari in 2008), Africa ( Sauti Za Busara in Zanzibar in 2010).
Massar Egbari won the Prize for The Best Band Performing Original Songs in Arabic in the first International Occidental Music Competition held in Bibliotheca Alexandrina in 2006. It has also won a Special Award in Other Songs Contest 2005 organized by the Euromed Café. 104 songs from more than 20 Mediterranean countries participated in the contest and the band’s song “Kol El Khal” was selected to get a Special Recognition Award.*
