FAYROUZ KARAWYA

GENERATION WEDNESDAY: EPISODE NINE

HOSTED BY RYN DEAN

Currently living in Paris, France, Fayrouz Karawya was born in Egypt and that’s where she first made her name as a musician. The penultimate episode of series 1 in Generation Wednesday sees Ryn Dean talk to Fayrouz about the role of women in Egypt, the benefits and difficulties of making music in Egypt, finding her sound fusing traditional music and Jazz, and what is was like finding a new home in Paris after starting out making music with her band in Cairo back in 2007, before going out to release her best selling album ‘Barry Menny’ (Outside of Me) in 2012.
