Egyptian singer Nouran AbuTaleb will give a concert in Alexandria on Wednesday as part of the Bibliotheca Alexandrina Art Centre's 18th International Summer Festival.
The young rising talent, who is known for her mixture of Arabic jazz and pop songs from different eras, will perform some other originals composed by her and bassist Samer George
Abu Taleb started with the German University in Cairo (GUC) music ensemble before developing her own identity in blending Arabic, jazz, and classical music.
The Bibliotheca Alexandrina's 18th Summer Festival, dedicated to late Egyptian folk-dance icon Mahmoud Reda, is seeing a variety of various art forms, with the remaining music events including concerts by Andromida (25), Ali El-Haggar (27) and Mostafa Awar (29) on the last day of the festival.
Cultural events and activities in Egypt were resumed last month as part of phase one of the country's reopening after the COVID-19 shutdowns. All events are being held under strict measures that include social distancing, obligatory masks, and sanitisation.
Nouran AbuTaleb will also hold another concert at the Cairo Opera House on 18 September.
Wednesday 26 August, 9pm
Bibliotheca Alexandrina, Art Centre, Alexandria
