EL KONTESSA-ARTIST 4-3 (0-00-04-00).png

El Kontessa, the alter ego of multidisciplinary artist Fajr Soliman, brings the vibrant sounds of Cairo to life, skillfully blending pop, Mahraganat, and Gqom elements. Her debut album "Nos Habet Caramel" (2023, Bilna'es) is a blast of accelerated polyrhythms, vocal samples, and Cairo soundscapes condensed into seven tracks that evoke a maximalist and ephemeral experience. Through her live performances, El Kontessa has wowed audiences worldwide, hitting up a variety of festivals and venues, and scoring recognition on global platforms like Boiler Room and NTS Radio. Her music transforms Cairo's sonic landscape into multi-layered explorations that fuse different musical genres, offering a unique take on Egypt's alternative music scene.
