Lebanese singer, songwriter and visual artist Tania Saleh is set to hold a concert on Wednesday 10 October at the Genaina Theatre in Cairo.

Well-known to Middle East and North Africa's audiences, the Lebanese singer began her musical vocation in 1990, writing songs that “mirror the reality of the Lebanese/Arab social and political turmoil," reads the biography section on her website.

Since then, Saleh has “experimented with various musical genres, which has resulted in a fresh and original mix of Lebanese “tarab”, “mawwal” and “dabke” flavored with folk, alternative rock, bossa nova and jazz.”

Saleh has a long CV of collaborations with international and regional artists, among the most notable names being Ziad Rahbani, Toufic Farroukh, Charbel Rouhana, Ibrahim Maalouf, RZA, Nile Rodgers, and Charlotte Caffey.

Her repertoire comprises four albums: Tania Saleh (2002), Wehde (2011), Live at DRM (2012) and most recently Shwayit Souwar (A Few Images, 2014), which she dedicated to the Arab woman.

Saleh also wrote the songs for two of Lebanese director Nadine Labaki’s films, Caramel (2007) and Where Do We Go Now? (2011). 

Saleh is already known to the Egyptian audience. In the past years, she performed in Cairo and Alexandria.
