Eftekasat was established in late 2001 in Cairo, Egypt and gave its debut performance in February 2002 at the Cairo Jazz Club. The show was acclaimed as unique and original.
Eftekasat is one of very few Egyptian independent music groups to have managed to establish themselves on the scene in such a little time. Their original composition can be classified as oriental jazz/fusion/rock and sometimes world music.
The band consists of Amro Salah (Piano, Synths), Samer George (Bass), Hany Badry (Nay), Amr Khairy "The Mestar" (Drums), Ousso (Guitars), Mohamad Medhat (Violin) and Hany Bedair (Percussions).
Eftekasat is a slang word that means innovations or innovative ideas.
