Egyptian band Massar Egbari will perform on Tuesday 20 August at the Cairo Citadel, as part of the 28th Citadel Festival for Music and Singing.

Massar Egbari featured Ahmed Shieba in their latest song Enzel Wa Sharek, released in April. The track called on Egyptians to participate in the recent referendum on the amendments to the Egyptian constitution.

The band was founded in 2005 by Ayman Massoud (keyboards), Hani El-Dakkak (guitar and lead vocal), Ahmed Hafez (bass guitar) and Tamer Attallah (drums); Mahmoud Siam (guitar) joined in 2008.

They play a form of alternative Egyptian music, mixing rock, jazz and blues with some Oriental music.

Their most recent album, El-Album, was released in January.

The Citadel Festival for Music and Singing wil take place from 18 August to 1 September, with three concerts a day at the historic venue.

Acts scheduled to perform include Cairo Steps, Nesma Abdel Aziz, Mohamed Mohsen, Ali El-Haggar, Hani Shaker, Medhat Saleh, Ghalia Ben Ali, Dina El-Wedidi and Omar Khairat.

The festival will also feature musicians from Algeria, China, Namibia and Venezuela.
