Husa & ZeyadaCA+EG
Husa & Zeyada is both an Egyptian-Canadian audiovisual project and an electronic band, whose work can best be described as a fusion between Zeyada’s synth- and electric guitar-infused Bedroom pop and Montréal DJ/producer Adam Husa’s mystical Deep House, the latter also known for having released music on Sol Selectas, Seven Villas, Magician On Duty and his own label Husa Sounds. Together, Husa & Zeyada shifted toward a sultry, enigmatic, electronic Indie Rock draped in English and Arabic lyrics. The pair, who met just before the onset of the pandemic, settled in Dahab, South Sinai, and released a number of tracks and videos showcasing their artistic vision and execution skills. Their innovative approach to music production and their ability to flawlessly mix a wide range of electronic sounds have given birth to numerous remixes by the likes of Hernan Cattaneo, Mustafa Ismaeel, Madmotormiquel and Artphormque. The duo released their debut album, Long Way Home, in 2022, conceived after a single week of jam sessions and explorations and grouping together several of the previously-released singles.
Husa & Zeyada will champion tracks from their album Long Way Home on MUTEK’s outdoor scene. Though he traces his musical roots back to House and Techno, Adam Husa transcends genre boundaries by focusing on ominous grooves and deep melodies, minimalist rhythms of tight percussion with delicate basslines flawlessly tuned to Zeyada’s layered vocals; the Egyptian musician and singer adds Indie influences punctuated by synths and guitar, imparting a beguiling tone to the whole performance.
Husa & Zeyada is a duo composed of Egyptian musician, singer, filmmaker and visual artist Zeyada, alongside Montréal producer and DJ Husa.
