Cairo's El-Genaina Theatre will present a range of muscial talent during it's 14th music season, starting on 19 April with a Tunisian duo called Yuma.

Comprised of Sabrine Jenhani and Ramy Zoghlami, Yuma released their first album Chura in 2016, followed by Ghbar Njoum in February 2018.

They shot to stardom very quickly in their native country, winning the Audience Award at the Journées Musicales de Carthage in 2017.

Also on the bill during the 14th season are Hazem Shahin (30 April) and Maryam Saleh (4 May), as well as Al-Darb Al-Ahmar Arts School.

El-Genaina Theatre is a semi-open venue located in Al-Azhar Park, next to to the Ayyubid wall.

Seating around 500 people, it has become a popular venue for plays, music and other performances since it opened in 2005.

Until 2015, an NGO called Al-Mawred Al-Thakafy (Culture Resource) was directly responsible for El-Genaina's activities.

With the suspension of Al-Mawred's activities in Egypt, the theatre was taken under the management of El-Genaina Company.

Al-Azhar Park, Salah Salem Road, Darassa, Cairo
