Lebanese star singer Hiba Tawaji will be performing at Hyde Park New Cairo on 18 December, accompanied by The Sphinx Symphony Orchestra of renowned musical director Oussama Rahbani and conducted by Hany Hassan.

"Let's break the silence of 2020 together and end it with music," stated Tawaji, of 'Sallem Ala Masr', urging her Egyptian fans to join in.

Tickets costing between EGP 600 and EGP 2,000 are currently available for the event, which marks the first performance by Tawaji in Egypt since the pandemic erupted.

The actress and director starred a number of films in addition to a series of musicals, with dozens of performances to her name throughout the Arab world and beyond.

Tawaji was the first female singer to ever perform publicly in Saudi Arabia.

Oussama, one of the most influential composers in the Middle East, is the son of Lebanese musician and poet Mansour Rahbani.

The duo has released three albums: 'Bidayi wala Nihayi' (2011), 'Ya Habibi' (2014), and 'Hiba Tawaji 30' (2017), in addition to the Christmas album 'Hallelujah' (2017).

The same crew performed at the marquee in 2019 and at Taj city in 2018.

All cultural public activities are being held amid safety measures to avoid the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
