Introducing Cairo’s wonderful Digla

Digla – “Highlights” mp3

Digla is an acoustic rock trio from Cairo, Egypt. They write evocative and highly visual lyrics, singing in English. The instrumental work is excellent, combining virtuosity with a thoughtful restraint, expertly framing the vocals so their stories can shine through. I was struck, when reading this group’s bio, by this sentence: “Digla can always be found working on new material and exploring new ways to promote it.” What an honest and direct statement, perfectly reflecting the current landscape of the music industry and the Internet. I’m very pleased to discover this sweet band, and to introduce them to you today. From their “Free Your Mind” LP, here is “Highlights.”
