Zikrayat: An Evening of Music in Cairo
Admission: $15 ($10 for students with valid ID
New York City-based Zikrayat presents the classical, dance, and folkloric music of the Arab world side-by-side in elegant stage productions that evoke the atmosphere of classic film from the “Golden Age” of Arab cinema. At Alwan, Zikrayat will present an intimate evening of music and dance, featuring some rarely-heard numbers from Egyptian films of the 1950’s and 60’s, as well as the premier performances of new compositions by Zikrayat members Sami Abu Shumays and Tareq Abboushi. We’re also very excited to present the young vocalist Salah Ragab, as well as the dancer Leela, both performing with us for the first time!
Zikrayat, co-directed by Sami Abu Shumays and Dameshe, features vocalists Gaida and Salah Ragab, dancers Dameshe, Nahara, Yowalka, and Leela, and musicians Tareq Abboushi (Buzuq, vocals, percussion), Sami Abu Shumays (violin, rababa, vocals), Nicole LeCorgne (percussion), Dimitri Mikelis (oud) Bridget Robbins (nay) and Nikolai Ruskin (percussion, mizmar, vocals).
