Playing Hooky 2015: Zeb, The Spy from Cairo
Italian by birth, Gypsy by heritage, and Brooklynite by residence, Zeb aka The Spy From Cairo is the kind of musician that fits in perfectly with the downtown NYC music scene and with a Playing Hooky session live in the studio! Zeb brings together deep Middle Eastern and Jamaican sounds in a hypnotic and captivating hour of music that sits at the unique nexus of Dub and Arabic music.
Tune in at 1pm to hear the whole set LIVE! Playing Hooky is Clocktower's live in-studio performance series featuring musicians of all ages and styles from cowboy music to pure noise. Recorded in our Red Hook studios at Pioneer Works and offered as a distraction from the mid-week blues.
Zeb has been closely associated with the Turntables on the Hudson scene for close to 12 years – producing dozens of albums as Zeb, The Spy From Cairo and the Organic Grooves project, as well as remixing for everyone from Baba Maal to Tosca to Billie Holliday to Novalima, steadily garnering a worldwide collective of fans and followers.
