A group of friends who are riding the crest of the wave of Egypt's new music generation, the Cairo-based Like Jelly band makes joyful, satirical and, above all, witty music about modern society.
The band performs celebratory, foot-stomping shows that invite interaction with audiences. Their acoustic music is built around catchy, sing-along tunes and clever lyrics that, as described by
Ahram Online, [take] a critical, yet humorous look at Egypt's current political and social situation.
Like jelly itself, the bands sound is hard to pin down, encompassing Egyptian sha'abi, rock and satirical pop.
