CAIRO - 11 July 2017: Jordanian musician Tareq Al Nasser will be performing in the Great Hall of the Bibliotheca Arts Center (BA) for the 15th Annual International Summer Festival in Alexandria on July 13.
Nasser has been described by music critics as one of the most influential pioneers in the Arabic music revival movement. Well known for composing and producing soundtracks for Arabic TV series as ‘The End of a Brave Man,’ ‘Birds of Prey,’ and ‘King Farouk,’ among others, Tareq began his career in 1993.
With critical acclaim for introducing contemporary themes in Arabic music, Nasser started composing and participating in the production of music through the launching of an experimental project that highlighted his signature compositions through new sounds in each performance. The project would turn into a band called ‘Rum’ that formed in 1998.
The band has performed across the globe with performances in the Arab world, Eastern and Western countries. Nasser has participated in joint performances with local artists and from Brazil, Scotland, Germany, Holland, Turkey, Kazakhstan, and the U.S.
Nasser’s performance begins at 8:30 p.m. and tickets are LE 50 ($2.79).
