Along comes another weekend with a broad spectrum of events that cover nearly every music genre. Indeed, the weather might not be entirely inviting, but that won’t hinder us from making the most of the two days we’ve been waiting for.
Thursday begins with some heavy Nubian and Sudanese beats, played by folk band, El Rango, at El Dammah Theatre as Shady Al Qasseer and his band take to the stage of ROOM Art Space for a jazz night, while budding starlets, Habiba Zahran and Donia Anis, serve a variety of covers and originals at 3elbt Alwan.
