German-Egyptian musical ensemble Cairo Steps are gearing up for three concerts in Egypt, including one with HOH band on 20 December in Cairo Festival City.
The first concert will be in Alexandria's Opera at the Sayed Darwish Theatre on 13 December 2018, three days before another at the Cairo Opera Theatre on 16 December 2018.

The band received the German Jazz Award at an event in Berlin in April alongside German band Quadro Nuevo for their joint album Flying Carpet, which saw a contribution from flautist Inas Abdel-Dayem, who is currently Egypt's culture minister.
