Sarah Carr on Amr Haha

In last week's podcast, we played a song by DJ Amr Haha, which as I explained is the sound of Cairo now: hip-hop mixed with drum'n'bass mixed with Egyptian shaabi. I'm very jealous that Sarah Carr of the Inanities blog got to meet him. Read her account of a baladi wedding featuring DJ Amr.
