Eftekasat Jazz Group was established in late 2001 and gave its debut performance in February 2002 at the Cairo Jazz Club Festival. The show was acclaimed as unique and original.
Eftekasat is one of very few Egyptian independent music groups that have managed to establish themselves on the scene in such little time. Their original compositions can be classified as oriental jazz/fusion/jazz rock and sometimes world music, insofar as they attempt to find a new, unorthodox dimension for oriental musical themes through fusion with other musical styles, such as jazz, rock, and Latin.
The Music of EFTEKASAT is best described by The Herald Tribune as it says: “Nonetheless, EFTEKASAT -which translates roughly as “new inventions”- have made an engaging album filled with a variety of textures and moods, and the record’s production values are slick and polished.
