Bodda is an Egyptian percussionist and multi-instrumentalist. Coming from the depths of Arabic culture Bodda has grown up exploring an array of music styles – such as Egyptian, Turkish, North African and Gulf Arabian – which have formed the basis of his musical work today.
As a teenager, Bodda began to work professionally as a percussionist with some of the most respected musicians in the traditional Egyptian music scene, soon establishing himself as a sought-after musician, well known for his authentic grasp of Arabic, African and Latin American music styles.
The development of his unique style is the result of a lifetime of musical influence, so he has an experience with many aspects of the industry including theatre and concert touring. Bodda’s skill in being a multi-instrumentalist has allowed him to assemble his own unique percussion set by blending eastern and western rhythms together. As a versatile percussionist and composer Bodda plays and composes his own fusion style blend of Arabic, Latin, Jazz, funk and new age music.
Bodda has performed with many Egyptian bands, such as Massar Egbari, Soot Fel Zahma, Helm Wahed, Takhtista, and The Karakeeb band. Bodda has also performed with some of the most respected Egyptian singers such as Mohamed Mohie, Hossam Hosny and performed a percussion show with DJ Sary, one of the most famous DJs in Egypt.
