MASQ will be hosting AbuTaleb for the first time since 2018 to celebrate Women’s Month.
She is expected to perform a number of her original songs including 'Fawazeer' and 'Fil Lail', and cover songs like 'Shababeek', 'El-Helwa De', 'Tayer Ya Hawa', 'Bahlam Ma'ak', and 'Ya Ghaly'.
AbuTaleb will be accompanied by renowned musicians Samer George (bass guitar), Mostafa Saeed (clarinet), and Hany Bedair (percussion).
A rising star of the alternative Arab music scene, AbuTaleb sings Oriental ethno-jazz and Arab pop.
The beautiful texture of her soft and melodious voice attracts a large audience to her live concerts.
AbuTaleb, who was born in Manial, Cairo, grew up in a family of music lovers. Her father, Ossama AbuTaleb, is a professor of theatre and drama at the Institute of Cinema.
The concert is free and has been organised to “support female artisans in the neighbourhood,” according to MASQ’s organisers.
The event will include a bazaar of handmade products, all made and sold by women.
The event is part of the series ‘Heritage for the Living in the City of the Dead Experience’ that is being implemented by ARCHiNOS Architecture and the Sultan Foundation and is primarily funded by the EU and DROSOS Foundation.
Saturday 12 March, at 8pm
Maq‘ad of Sultan Qaitbey, Darb El-Sakiya St.
The bazaar will run from 3pm to 9pm
