The event — drawing attention to the legacy of Kami in Egyptian, films in addition to his important role in the classical scene — will host a number of important persons from the music and cinema scenes.

Among the guests of honour at the tribute will be prominent Egyptian flutist Enes Abdel-Dayem, currently minister of culture; well-known Egyptian violinist Hassan Sharara, former dean of the Cairo Conservatory; renowned Egyptian pianist Ramzi Yassa, and many others.
