        01.     Rats Don't Eat Synthesizers - Ringa Mask Koshari, part
        02.     Ringa Mask Koshari, part 2

The long-awaited second album by The Dwarfs Of East Agouza. Hailing from the Agouza
district of Cairo, Egypt, this brilliant trio consists of Alan Bishop (acoustic bass
and alto sax), Maurice Louca (keyboards and drum machine) and Sam Shalabi (electric
guitar). Following their acclaimed first album 'Bes', this long play is composed of
two hypnotic journeys: 'Rat's Dont Eat Synthesizers' and 'Ringa Mask Koshary' which
was recorded in Cairo in September of 2015. Mesmerizing electric guitar parts, frenetic
beats, both supported by the deep sound of Alan's acoustic bass create a magical
Egyptian soundscape. The vinyl version is coming with a beautiful hot-foil stamped
sleeve that magnifies the red metallic rats and a wonderful printed inner sleeve.
