The Tunisian artist, who has built a sizeable audience for her songs on the Nile, returns to perform at Cairo's hot summer festival

Benali, who was born in Belgium but grew up in the Tunisian town of Zarzis, is known for amalgamating musical influences and traditions from East and West – such as her fusion of elements of Arabic classical style with jazz and Indian music.
