Maurice Louca is one of the most interesting figures in the flourishing Egyptian experimental scene. Accompanied by the inventive minds of the Lebanese group "A" Trio (Mazen Kerbaj, Raed Yassin and Sharif Sehnaoui), the musician and composer presents his new album Saet El-Hazz (The Luck Hour), which combines Egyptian chaabi, psychedelic folk and improvisation. This exclusively acoustic new opus marries various granular and unheard-of sounds, created from salvaged or "prepared" instruments such as tubes and garden hoses converted into trumpets, or guitars adapted to the scales of the maqam and strings lined with clothes pegs and other metal trombones. In its glowing review, The Guardian newspaper revealed that "What could, on paper, be provocatively “difficult” music becomes quite transcendentally beautiful."
