Jazz Night: New Jazz in Egypt
As part of the Umsiyat concert series, Trio Abozekrys will be performing in Abu Dhabi for the very first time. The trio is the first musical meeting between two brothers, and its music tells a story of travelling back and forth between Egypt and France.
Earlier in their careers, the Abozekry brothers never collaborated with each other – each of them following their own artistic path. But a few years ago, they united in a musical dialogue, forming a visionary and explosive project that demonstrates to audiences how interesting contemporary instrumental music produced in the Middle East can be.
No pyramids, camels, or pharaohs! Trio Abozekrys is an experience from a totally new generation of eccentric and energetic musicians. The Abozekry brothers – Mohamed on oud and Abdallah on saz, accompanied by Nicolas Thé on drums – bring new flavour to Middle Eastern sounds, changing expectations about what jazz can be.
