This story starts at the end. More specifically, the end of once-was Australian band, Kid Confucius – a 9-year musical mountain climb in which Andrawis George acted as main songwriter and co-protagonist. But this story also starts at the beginning. The very beginning; the birth of an artistic child to scientific Egyptian parents; a modern-day descendent of pharaohs, Nile wanderers and pyramid builders. He wishes.
But this story really only gets interesting once Andrawis kicks his own ass into writing, recording and designing an epic indie pop solo project, which would span 5 countries, 8 studios and a little over 2 years of work and sleeplessness. It’s not a music project, it’s not a design project. It’s both. And whichever way you look at it or listen to it, it’s all Andrawis George. Part music, part design.
This is Young Cairo. More to come soon.
