CAIRO – 13 May 2018: CAIRO – 13 May 2018: Famed Tunisian artist Ghalia Benali will perform a concert at Cairo Opera House on June 9 as part of Cairo Opera House’s Ramadan concerts. Benali started her artistic career path when she studied art in Belgium. She then found herself mesmerized with the multiculturalism of the Middle East.

She grew up listening to the voices of Umm Kulthum and other Arab legends, and she watched Arabic films that later contributed to her understanding of the multiple Arabic cultures and philosophies.

She embarked on her journey in music when she released her album in the late 1990s. Her album “Ghalia Benali Sings Om Kalthoum”, released in 2010, attracted various Arabic youth to enjoy the classical strong lyrics of the famous Umm Kulthum and to discover Benali.

As usual, Cairo Opera House will present a wide variety of concerts throughout the holy month of Ramadan, with a massive schedule of more than 42 concerts. The first 21 concerts are scheduled to take place in the Small Hall and the Open Air Theater.

In cooperation with their embassies in Cairo, five Arab and Islamic countries – Indonesia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Tunisia, Palestine and Sudan – will celebrate Ramadan through performances presented by their art troupes to reflect their heritage, customs and traditions. The Armenian embassy will celebrate 100 years of independence by presenting Armenian-style concerts.

The Open Air Theater will host 16 concerts in Ramadan that combine singing, religious singing, mystical singing, spiritual music, and some unique artistic experiences for the youth artists.

Ramadan concerts will be performed by various prominent artists, including Medhat Saleh, Nesma Abdel Aziz, Al-Radwan (Al-Maraashli Sons) group, Hadara Group, Hazem Shaheen and his troupe, Sheikh Ehab Younis, Dina Al-Wadidy, Basata Troupe, Mawlawia troupe and artist Amer el Tony, the South Nubian band led by Mahmoud Al-Sharqawi, Fathi Salama with Sheikh Mahmoud Al-Tohamy, Intisar Abdel Fattah and Tunisian singer Ghalia Benali.


In parallel, Cairo Opera House continues its annual season of performances at its large theaters in the Cairo, Alexandria and Damanhur opera houses with 21 other concerts for the Cairo Symphony Orchestra, Abdel Halim Noireh Ensemble for Arab Music and the National Arab Music Ensemble. Benali started her artistic career path when she studied art in Belgium. She then found herself mesmerized with the multiculturalism of the Middle East.
