Undoubtedly, Bikya is all about a new sound, With a solid Acoustic trio of
Drums, Bass, guitar/synthesizers , along with electronic experimentation
creating a fusion of styles, That labels collapse. Bikya was formed in 2005, and is based in Cairo/Egypt.
"It is difficult to find a superlative adequate to describe the excellence
of this group, who harness the intensity of electronic sound and
combine it with soulful, melodious guitar to create really beautiful
music. There is arguably a certain emotional inaccessibility about
electronic music of this kind - at least for the uninitiated - which Bikya
successfully avoid, and then some: their compositions are both fresh
- Sarah Carr Al Ahram Weekly/Cairo
"Certainly Bikya's music falls into an isolated niche - The brilliance lies
in the balance between sounds and in the depth of the compositions.
Bikya flirts with accessible song structures without compromising on
innovation or on making music that sounds resolutely new."
- Kaelen Wilson-Goldie Daily Star staff/Beirut
Bikya released its self Titled debut Album Bikya with Cairo based label
100coopies (2007) and toured intensively in the Arab world and Europe.
