New CD by The Invisible Hands [El Ayadi El Khafeyya]



The Invisible Hands is the English translation of the band's original Egyptian Arabic name: El Ayadi El khafeyya الايادي الخفية.

The group was founded by frontman, guitarist, and keyboardist Alvarius B. (aka Alan Bishop, formerly of the Sun City Girls), the only American member. The balance of the lineup — Cherif El Masri on guitars, bass, and keyboards and vocalist Aya Hemeda (both former members of popular Egyptian group Eskenderella), drummer Magued Nagati, and Mohammed Medhad on violin and viola — all hail from Cairo, Egypt. The band recorded its self-titled debut album twice, once in English, once in Arabic. The set was released by Abduction in March of 2013. (Source: iTunes)

This sound sample includes short excerpts from each of the Arabic songs on the Deluxe double CD:


The CD is available for sale on iTunes
