Egyptian singer Nouran AbuTaleb will give a concert at the Arabic Music Institute on Friday, 17 May, as part of the culture ministry’s special Ramadan programming.

The young and promising talent and her ensemble will merge Arabic jazz and pop songs with many known tunes as usual.

"Although my last concert was not long ago, but I really feel I miss singing and all the lovely crowd," stated AbuTaleb on Monday via her Facebook page.

"Can't wait for my first concert in Ramadan on this very majestic stage," she added.                         

She is usually accompanied by musicians Samer George on bass guitar, Mostafa Said on clarinet, and Hani Bedir on percussion.

Together with George, she lately composed and sang 'Fawazeer', the theme of Alemet Estefham ('Question Mark') TV series, that is currently broadcast on various TV channels during the Ramadan season.


AbuTaleb started with the German University in Cairo (GUC) music ensemble before shaping her own identity in blending Arabic, jazz and classical music.

On the same stage, Islamic chanter Ihab Yunis is performing Thursday amid the culture ministry's celebration of Ramadan that sees a rich programme in various venues.

Friday, 17 May, 9:30pm
Arabic Music Institute, Galaa Street, Downtown Cairo
