Brickwork Lizards Returns to St. Giles!

Cinematic Arabic jazz fusion ensemble based in Oxford.

“One of the most creative, and certainly eclectic bands the city has ever produced.”
(Oxford Times)

Brickwork Lizards began to take shape after a chance encounter at a party, when Egyptian vocalist and oud-player Tarik Beshir met Oxford rap scene stalwart Tom O’Hawk. Discovering a mutual love of the 1930s harmony group The Ink Spots, they dreamed up an entirely new sound that would combine pre-war jazz with Arabic and Middle Eastern music, paying tribute along the way to countless other styles.
