Position: Cairo between street and space

Vincent Battesti

Artist: Y.A.S.(Yasmine Hamdan and Mirwais Ahmadzaï)
Album: Aräbology
Track: Get It Right.
Year: 2009.


The video for “Get It Right,” their first single, has the familiar nocturnal urban landscape of a Western pop video, full of club-hopping scenesters chattering on cellphones and throbbing on dark dance floors. But there are differences—young girls in hijab, towering mosques and the vibrant streets of Cairo.
