CAIRO – 4 September 2017: The 'Goethe Institute' and Hamburg Kitchen Session have unveiled a project titled; ‘Music Spaces in the Arab World’ that helps expose Arab musicians to wider audiences.
The project involves artists from across the Middle East and North Africa performing in the comfort of their own homes, showcasing their living rooms while the band jams off.
The musical style ranges from alternative rock to traditional, all with an Arab flair.
By focusing on the living spaces of the musicians, this project allows for audiences to feel closer to the artists. The project includes numerous concerts set across the Arab world, including Alexandria, Cairo, Gaza, Beirut and more. Not only that, but these concerts will also be available to a broader audience worldwide via online streaming.
Amongst the musicians involved include Cairo’s Shady Ahmed, Hany Must + Yasmine Shady and Alexandria’s Telepoetic and Fady Badr.
