MAII AND ZEID
Maii and Zeid; a one of a kind Arabic Indie Pop number from Alexandrian singer, songwriter and guitarist Maii Waleed and Lebanese underground producer Zeid Hamdan, from soapkills and Zeid and the Wings fame. Together they've created the recently released, minimal four-track EP Ezaal, incorporating exquisite melodies, subtle beats and introspective lyrics. Maii sings the way she speaks, with a slang approach to romanticism, and never fails to use her imagination and witty sense of humour. Meanwhile Zeid’s skill and creativity production-wise and on the instruments remain apparent, merging perfectly with Maii’s ethereal energy without imposing on the day-dreamy aura that surrounds their collective product.
Maii and Zeid. This dynamic duo, who have been working with each other since 2010, have carefully crafted their sound making a unique to the Arab world album entitled Moga (Wave). Their music is smooth but interesting, sounding like mix of up tempo pop rock Bossa-Nova with an Arab flair. Hailing from Alexandria, Maii Waleed's vocals are soft spoken, adorable, and addictive. With the release of latest EP Ezaal , it wouldn't be a surprised if this project takes off as the sound is unique to the regions musical landscape.
They have recently added to their live setting the virtuoso drummer Fouad Afra giving more interactivity to their electronic pop oriented sound.
