Popular accordionist and singer Youssra El-Hawary will hold a concert with her band at the Greek Campus in downtown Cairo.

Youssra El-Hawary took the music scene by storm in 2012 with her hit single El-Soor, which discussed the Egyptian army's concrete barricades that had then started to criss-cross downtown Cairo.

Since then, the accordionist and her band have given several concerts in Cairo and Alexandria, as well as participating in festivals abroad.

She also hosted a weekly radio show during 2014 named Aadet Mazzika, on local commercial radio station Nogoum FM, which aimed to highlight local independent musicians.

8.30pm, 25 February
Greek Campus, 28 Falaki street, Bab El-Louk, downtown, Cairo
