about

Zamalek is an island in Cairo in the middle of the Nile. But also a neighbourhood, something in between. This album is about the sky you can’t see from this island and the things that swim in it. Zamalek is a warm cuddle from your trusted friend, a fist in the nape from your best enemy.

Track Name: The Beast
She makes fun of me
like a clown laughs at his audience.

I'm lying down
pretending to be fine,
cuddling my body, curled up on myself.

The Beast is on me, please take my hand

I could feel her carving things on my neck,
as when we were young
writing our names on the tree.

The beast is on me, please take my hand.
The Beast is on me, bring along me by the hand
