The sixth edition of Men Fat Adimmuh Tah (He who loses his past is lost), an annual festival for traditional arts and handicrafts, will include daily musical concerts at Beyt El-Sinnari.

The festival aims to preserve the heritage of local arts and crafts that are close to extinction, such as straw mats, bronze crafting and hand weaving.

Works will be presented from a number of cities across Egypt, including El-Fayoum, El-Wadi El-Gedid, and Kafr El-Sheikh.

The festival will also include workshops that aim to inform and invoke interest among the new generations on the tools and equipment used for the different crafts throughout history.

In parallel to the festival, musical concerts will be held every evening at 7.30pm.
