Well-known Egyptian alternative singer Maryam Saleh will perform poetry and song alongside Tamer Abu Ghazaleh, Palestinian oud player and composer and the Lekhfa album partner at the French Cultural Institute in Mounira on Saturday 17 November.

The performance is being held "on the occasion of the Night of Poetry proposed by the Institute of the Arab World and the House of Poetry in Paris," according to the institute.

The new event, which is promised to be repeated, will witness reading, singing and music with Saleh and Abu Ghazaleh performing poems by Mido Zoheir.

"For this first edition, the French Institute celebrates the cross between poetry and contemporary music," said the institute, which described Saleh as "an essential figure in the Egyptian pop scene."
