Golden Voice

The annual concert by the winners of the Golden Voice competition will be held at the Arab Singing House, Prince Bashtak Palace, on 18 February.

Located at the historic Al-Moez street, the Palace is a 14th century gem built by the Mamluk amir Sayf Al-Din Bashtak Al-Nasiri.

Organised by the Cultural Development Fund, a body operating under the Ministry of Culture, the event will feature winners of the previous edition of the Golden Voice competition led by Medhat Abdel-Samie.

The Golden Voice competition is an annual event aiming to discover new talents, aged 18-30, in singing and playing instruments. Young people from all across Egypt submit their applications and a selected handful reaches the finals. Then a jury consisting of renowned Egyptian musicians announces ten winners.

The top ten winners of the Golden Voice receive scholarships to study at the House of Arab Singing and opportunities to perform in front of an audience.

The annual Golden Voice competition was launched by renowned singer Mohsen Farouk (1961-2017). 


Thursday 18 February, 8pm
Arab Singing House (Prince Bashtak Palace), Al-Moez street, Old Cairo
