Egyptian singer Hana Afifi will perform a jazzy set with her band at Room Art Space on 4 May.

The playlist includes a mixture of English, Arabic and French songs, with tunes by Ella Fitzgerald, Fairouz, Lena Chamamyan, and Édith Piaf.

The performance borrows soulful, groovy beats from the Gypsy Jazz Project musicians: bassist Andrew Safwat and guitarist Michael Adel, with jazz pianist Karim Wadid, drummer Amr Abdel el-Fattah, and Ali Nada’s oriental rhythms on the riq.

Egyptian singer Hana Afifi is part of the Fabrica musical theatre company. She has featured with various bands, including Cairo Big Band Society, The Gypsy Jazz Project, and Retro.

She was also part of The Motherline storytelling project held at Falaki Theatre.

Friday 4 May at 8:30pm
Room Art Space, Room Art Space & Café, 10 Etehaad Al-Mohamin St., Garden City, Cairo
