The band has finally released it debut album under the Egyptian label Star Gate Records, in 2007. The band's name in Arabic means "Downtown". Later after Omran and Adel formed the band, 6 more members joined, each with his own musical background, blending it all together. Their first appearance as Wust El Balad was at Al Mashrabeya Gallery, followed by their first paid performance at the Berlitz Language Center. Ever since that moment, Wust El Balad was a regular performer at all galleries, cultural centers, bars, special events and hotels, and even abroad.

Their music blends the Egyptian traditional style with the modern musical touch. They mix music played with purely oriental instruments, such as oud, with western styles of music, such as those played with "guitar" and "Piano." Their vision then was to reach the average person that can't afford to hear them in bars or galleries, and so they were the first band to play in the Egyptian street, experiencing one of the most amazing concerts, playing in Al Alfi Street to the local community during the French festival "Les Français aiment l'Egypte." They have also played in Bagdad street in 2005 in the celebration of Heliopolis's 100th anniversary, and ever since then, they play there every year as a celebration of the Spring.
