Islam Chipsy casts away for good any consideration about the impossibility of playing oriental music on western instruments. Once you watch him play his synthesizer, the question becomes how to play rock or Bach on an oriental keyboard! With his fiery electro-chaabi, this Cairene musician is a wizard of musical trance and makes our psychedelic trials of the seventies sound like Marching band music. Flanked by two drummers, he cooks up vivid riffs that keep on building up and up until reaching a furiously hypnotic climax.
