 Cairokee live from Tahrir - Sherif Hatem El Hawary, Sherif Mostafa, Tamer Hashem und Amir Eid

Cairo-Kee, the name is aspired from both the words Cairo and karaoke which means singing along with Cairo.  The band first, started by the name “The Black star” which means the unseen star, where they used to play English covers. But the band was seriously formed in the year 2003, ever since the band has performed live in various places. The idea of playing music and performing live was a childhood dream for all the members of the band.

This was brought to life when Amir (vocal) and Hawary (guitarist) when they started singing in Arabic out of humor, really. They thought to themselves why not take it seriously and go Arabic all the way, since it’s their mother tongue while blending it with the Rock influences they have grown to love and admire: this created a really exotic and if nothing else, really interesting form of music. Later on, Tamer, Chris and Yamen joined them, with Tamer on drums, Chris working the keyboards, and Yamen on Bass. Unfortunately though, Yamen had to split the band to pursue his studies abroad an was later replaced by current bass player Haitham Ehab. Chris then left to Libya for business at one of the most crucial times in the history of the band, leaving them with no choice but to rearrange the songs. For sometime they were sort of obliged to perform as a quartet, which wasn’t something that totally bothered them. During that period, the band immensely matured both commercially and musically. This was the turning point that helped them build a strong base for their future plans. Later on, Adam (saxophone) and Bahaa (oriental percussions) joined them adding a twist of flavor to the band.!/cairokee
