They have represented Egypt in a number of festivals in Italy, France, Spain, Germany, India, Austria, Lebanon, USA, Switzerland, Dubai, Bahrain, Jordan, Qatar and Oman.

The concert is amid the Bibliotheca Alexandrina's International Summer Festival kicking-off on Friday 26 July with a concert for Jordanian rock band JadaL.
