    Created a new event: "Sahra with (Aragide Group) Nubian Fade"
    Nov 04, 2014|18:00(GMT)
    Nubia is our gate to Sub-Saharan Africa and the bridge between the cultures of the Mediterranean Sea and the African continent. Nubian rituals, and the traditions of the Kenouz and the Fadeka tribes, the two main language groups in Nubia (the third group, the 'Ukaylat are essentially Arabic speakers) are closely integrated with singing, particularly in respect to feasts of rejoicing and wedding celebrations. In its traditional form this music is based on the interaction of all the performers and the audience with singing and clapping and accompanied by the tar, a frame drum and the kisir, a five-stringed lyre or the oud. Nubian music is further distinguished from other Egyptian styles by its use of the pentatonic scale and of particular and characteristic rhythms. Aragid is one of the few active ensembles playing the traditional music of Nubia. The term, Aragid, denotes the practice and music of the main procession in the wedding traditions of the Fadeka.

    Created a new event: "Mazaher ensemble (Zar Music & Songs) "
    Nov 05, 2014|18:00(GMT)
    Mazaher is an ensemble in which women play a leading role. The musicians of Mazaher ‎, Umm Sameh, Umm Hassan, Nour el Sabah are among the last remaining Zar practitioners in Egypt. The music is inspired by the three different styles musical styles of the Zar tradition practiced in Egypt. One of the African dimensions of Egypt, Zar music unfolds through rich poly-rhythmic drumming: it's songs are distinctly different from other Egyptian music traditions. The music of Mazaher is inspired by the three different styles of Zar music practiced in Egypt-the Egyptian or Upper Egyptian Zar, Abu Gheit Zar and the Sudanese, or African Zar. The ECCA is not researching or documenting the ritualistic aspects of the Zar, rather it focuses documenting and promoting this unique musical legacy. ECCA has gathered together some Zar performers and motivated them to go through lengthy sessions of rehearsing, remembering and recording. Mazaher is the result of these efforts.

    Created a new event: "Arab Tribes from Aswan "Jaafra Music "
    Oct 28, 2014|19:00(GMT)
    Sayed Rekabi is counted among the few singers who still perform the original repertoire of the traditional music of the Arab tribes of Upper Egypt. Born in the village of Jaafra in the province of Aswan, he learned these singing styles under the tutelage of the great masters of the Jaafra tradition, El Leithi and Abu El Amin whose repertoire encompasses numerous examples of popular poetry, such as the Nameem, a kind of poetic competition between two poet-singers in which each poet tries to "top" his rival's poetic lines with spontaneously composed poetry. Except for the melodically improvised and un-metered introduction to each stanza ('ya leil" or "lolee" ) which is shared by other traditional Egyptian song forms, Nameem can be most clearly compared to the rhythmic and chantlike "Rap" or "Hip hop". Sayed Rekabi and his ensemble present a collection of Jaafra traditional songs based on traditional poetic forms (including adaptations of Nameem) with voices, oud (lute) and doff (small frame drum). Tickets price: 30 L.E per person 20 L.E per person for families. Doors open at 8:30pm. Ps: Reservations is canceled at 9:00pm Tea and Karkade are served To rsvp.
