About this event
In collaboration with the Egyptian Center for Culture and Arts (ECCA) – Makan, BELONG brings some of the finest Egyptian traditional musicians to Luxembourg in order to introduce Egyptian traditional music and exchange with local artists.
In efforts to preserve traditional Egyptian music, ECCA has brought together musicians from Menufiya, Qalyubiya and Sharqiya, with broad knowledge in tradition Egyptian repertoire (Sufi, Zikr, Mawal, etc.), to form the group Mawawil. Mawawil combines ancient Egyptian instruments, i.e. Arghoul which is a reed wind blown instrument, with modern western instruments (i.e. trumpet/saxophone), reviving the far history of Egyptian traditional music, and merging it with its recent development. Join our free of charge masterclass and discover several forms of Egyptian traditional music.
