CAIRO - 21 July 2019: The National Center for Theater, Music and Folklore headed by Yasser Sadik will celebrate the anniversary of the glorious July 23 Revolution through the establishment of a concert at Al Salam Theater in Al-Qasr Al-Aini Street.
The concert will be held on July 23 under the supervision of Khalid Galal, head of cultural production affairs.
The concert’s program includes a collection of some of the finest national songs sung by Egyptian icons to celebrate the July Revolution and its achievements, including “Ada el-Nahar”, “Ya Nesmet el-Horreya” (Breeze of freedom), “Besmellah Allahu Akbar” (In the name of Allah, Allah is Great”, “Tof we Shof” (Roam and see), among others.
The Egyptian July 23 Revolution took place on July 23, 1952 by the Free Officers Movement, a group of army officers led by Mohammed Naguib and Gamal Abdel Nasser. The coup aimed at overthrowing King Farouk’s regime.
The movement had more political ambitions, and quickly moved to abolish the constitutional monarchy and aristocracy of Egypt and Sudan, aiming to establish a republic, end the British occupation of the country, and securing the independence of Sudan.
