The composition features Ali Farbodnia, a Turkey-based musician performing on the Armenian duduk, joined by Kharma on keyboards and Hafeed on guitar. 

The shots present the trio performing at the feet of the Menkaure Pyramid, the smallest among the three Giza Pyramids, with the camera showcasing its different sides reflecting the sun and hidden in the shadow.

The video is part of Kharma's music project that blends music with tourism, highlighting Egypt's tourist landmarks.

In May Kharma and Lebanese singer and violinist Johanna Morkos released the single Nerouh L'Baeed (We'll Go Far). The music video was shot in Gouna, a Red Sea resort, showcasing the planes, landscape, sea, and nature.

Since its release on 3 June, Kharma's most recent single, Waiting for the Sun, has garnered 150 thousand views on YouTube.

 

 

Born and raised in Cairo, Kharma began performing live music concerts in 2016. Accompanied by a grand orchestra, Kharma performed in major events at notable locations such as the foot of the pyramids, the Cairo Citadel, and the London Mansion House.
