Cairo Steps And Few Vocal Friends Bedazzle The Troubled Nation of Egypt @BasemDarwisch

The Egyptian band Cairo Steps just out on a great live show in the Egyptian house of opera where they dazzled with their music, their lyrics, energy and stories. I love the vocalists here and the guests from around the world who came to entertain and appreciate a rare musical event in a troubled country. There is some close to perfection performances, but what is the most astonishing thing about this is how so many different musical styles, and elements were blended in this show. It’s never easy to get fusion right, it’s even more complicated to do live fusion with different languages and different musical scales.

This video from a concert that took place late last month, there are all-Egyptian musical styles and one shared message, asking for mercy from the Lord. This is what is called Darweesh style that blends worship with entertainment.  The crafty work of Basem Darwisch who is on the Oud is present yet does not drown out the other talents.  The vocal guesats of Monika George , Peter Ghattas , Ali El Helbawi combined by Sheikh Ihab Younis make one impressive line up.
