"One main idea led to the formation of Gemmeza; the idea of beginning a mission to bring back an Egyptian character to contemporary Egyptian music. The band tries to represent an Egyptian spirit through their music, which they compose and put lyrics to by doing workshops in which they create their music. Gemmeza is funded by the poet Nasser El Nubi. He founded the band upon publishing his first book 'Mirror of Water,' which pushed him to search for the "real" Egyptian song.
