CAIRO – 30 July 2018: The Egyptian band Monte Cairo will present a huge concert on Wednesday August 8 at the Citadel's Mahka Theatre as part of Salah El-Din Citadel Festival for Music and Singing.

Monte Cairo portrays each music piece by dancing, in a technique close to that of the famous Moulin Rouge. The band presents the most famous songs of the 1960s and 1970s, such as "I will survive", mixing them with Egyptian oldies.

Minister of Culture Inas Abdel Dayem will inaugurate on August 2 the Salah El-Din Citadel Festival for Music and Singing at the citadel's Mahka Theatre.

Chairman of Cairo Opera House Magdy Saber remarked that this year's edition of the festival has been granted an international badge for the first time.

Organized by the Cairo Opera House, the festival will run until Aug. 17, presenting 37 various concerts by Egyptian and Arab artists.

Saber referred that after Abdel Dayem delivers her speech during the inauguration ceremony, several figures, who have a great impact on the festival’s success such as singers Hany Shaker and Medhat Saleh as well as the violin player Alaa Khalil, will be honoured with honour shields and certificates of appreciation.

The honouring ceremony will be followed by Chinese shows and folklore songs presented by Chinese youth and children and a concert by Shaker.

This year the festival’s line-up includes Fouad and Mounib band, Tunisian singer Ghali Banali, Egyptian marimba player Nesma Abdel Aziz, Egyptian singers Sheikh Yasin al-Tuhami, Ali el-Haggar, Iman al-Bahr Darwish and IhabTawfik, in addition to El-Nour Wel Amal Orchestra and Syrian singer Majd al-Qasim.
