Egypt’s Maktoub Trio is set to perform four concerts in Copenhagen this week as part of their tour of the Danish capital.

The band's line-up consists of percussionist Ayman Mabrouk, accordionist Wael El-Sayed, Ahmed Maher on oud and French/Lebanese Andre Segone on double bass.

During their tour they will collaborate with Danish saxophonist Benjamin Kopple, Swedish bassist Thommy Anderson and other musicians from around the world.

All four musicians have appeared at numerous festivals, both in Egypt and internationally. They premiered together at El Genaina Theatre in 2013. They also performed with Tunisian artist Ghalia Ben Ali at the Hayy music festival last year, receiving strong applause from the audience.
