Omar Khayyam, Egypt's flagship wine, recently held the Omar Khayyam Culture Festival at Darb 1718 on Saturday 3rd November 2012 to celebrate Egyptian heritage through a showcase of traditional and contemporary art, music and food.
Coinciding with the launch of the latest 2011 vintage, the new Omar Khayyam now has an easy-to-open screw cap seal and authentic new label underpinning it further as the eternal wine of Egypt. The festival saw hundreds of attendees flock to El Fustat, the original area where "the city victorious" was founded, for an afternoon enjoying modern art by the likes of SamDzine, Menna Hafez and Salah Botrous, as well as photography by Karim Mansour and Marwa Adel. Attendees also enjoyed music from prominent local musicians, Ashara Gharby and Salalem, whose unique take on modern Nubian and Egyptian music had the crowds entertained into the early evening. Local favourites, Buzz, closed the festival with blistering performances of rock and roll classics.
