CAIRO – 22 May 2018: Cairo Opera House’s Open Theater is holding the first Ramadan Nights event, featuring Syrian Sufi band Al Radwan, on Thursday, May 24 at 9 p.m.

The Syrian Sufi band Al Radwan is set to perform during the launch of the program. The band specializes in singing Islamic songs common among Sufis.

Food and “sohour” (last meal prior to fasting) will be served while the group recites songs that praise Allah and the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).

Al Radwan, led by Abdel Kader Al-Merashly, is also known for organizing gatherings with poets and fans to meet and exchange poems and knowledge of religious poetry.

The group is also known for blending modern styles of music with the traditional standards followed in the past, without offending the laws or boundaries commonly followed when it comes to Islamic musical compositions.

Al Radwan was founded in Damascus, Syria in 1980 by Merashly, a famous Sufi reciter in Syria who follows the Shadhili and Rifa’i Sufi orders.
