Medusa’s Bed – Lydia Lunch, Zahra Mani, Mia Zabelka
Nadah El Shazly

Restless nomad and no-wave feminist trailblazer Lydia Lunch will appear in the context of Medusa’s Bed, which features two visionary collaborators: the experimental violinist Mia Zabelka and the sound artist Zahra Mani. In the project, Lunch’s haunting, terrifying vocals, Zalbeka’s avant-violin stylings, and Mani’s psycho-ambient soundscapes are braided together into a sinister radiophonic murder mystery. 
Cairo-based Nadah El Shazly, another courageous female voice, will give a performance celebrating the November release of her debut album, Ahwar, on Khyam Allami’s Nawa Recordings. Recorded with a band and produced together with Maurice Louca & Sam Shalabi, the album is an intricately woven and poetically powerful answer to the reactionary world around her, which her lyrics so eloquently portray in the line “I drown in a sea of saliva of lunatics”.
