Maurice Louca Performs Garraya
Garraya is Maurice Louca’s debut album, with songs composed and produced over the last couple of years.
The charged, concrete melodies and rhythms create music that borders between the vastness of landscape, and the repetitive intensity of a confined space.
“With Garraya, Louca has crafted a work of bruising intensity, and also unexpected beauty. This isn’t post-industrialist, or post-rock, but rather post-everything”. Ali Abdel Mohsen (Al-Masry Al-Youm)
