Liverpool, United Kingdom
Property Of Nadya Shanab is a band envisioned by Nadya Shanab; a Singer/Songwriter born and raised in Egypt.
Nadya interrupted her studies of Sociology and Maths at The American University in Cairo (AUC) and is currently studying at the Paul McCartney’s school; Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA) for her BA (Hons) degree in Music, where she met her fellow band mates, Samantha Lubin (Percussion), James Thorne (Bass), Luke Hodgkinson (Guitar), Joaqim Lewerin (Violin) and James Bernardis (Drums), who all add intricate elements to Nadya Shanab's music.
Their sound is a fine blend of western acoustic, folk rock and Arabic music. Shanab's often haunting melodies are laced with oriental vocals and spiced up with passionate, heartfelt lyrics. Songs often yo-yo between both Arabic and English lyrics while being anchored down by traditional rock/pop song structure. They tend to leave their audience with a deep sense of melancholic satisfaction.
