Out Of Nations is a dream for a future world where humanity comes before nationality. Founded by composer/reeds player Lety ElNaggar and producer/engineer Khalil Chahine, the band breathes new life into familiar genres by playing original, danceable world music rooted in pop, funk & jazz.
The show at Badehaus Szimpla will feature special appearances from Yuriy Gurzhy & Youssef Bosnali. Live, the band invites audiences on a journey through Middle Eastern and Latin inspired Electro-Acoustic grooves — a soundtrack to match the visual wonderland they create on stage. The show transports audiences through recognizable and imaginary places, reflecting the mind’s creative potential when freed from the idea that all people should identify with a certain nation. They’ve performed to ecstatic audiences at Berlin’s legendary Quasimodo club & UfaFabrik Internationales Kultur Centrum, Luxembourg’s Meyouzik Festival, Cairo’s D-CAF (Downtown Contemporary Arts Festival), and more.
Out Of Nations’ music has been featured on Worldbeat Canada, Radio Monte Carlo, RadioEins, Deutsche Welle, Rhythm Planet, Global Village, and BBC & PRI co-produced radio program The World. Critics have called their recently released, debut album Quest “a spectacular world music album that wanders with ease and elegance between propulsive, rhythmically dynamic global beats.”
The album has attracted a broad palette of World Music, Jazz, and Electronic music and media outlets like Songlines, World Music Central, Jazz Thing magazine, SoulandJazz, the Huffington Post, and Faze Magazin among others.
