The Nur Collective x Mosaic Art Studio: The Nava Music Series 

Egyptian music night - Workers, Lovers, Dancers, and Dopers

An intimate musical gathering tracing the dawn of Egyptian pop music in the 1910s until the Golden Age of Arabic music in the 1960s. We will perform Sayed Darwish’s political pop music and one of Umm Kulthum’s iconic love songs among other pieces, and explore the coming together of religious sounds, musical ecstasy, revolutionary zeal, national identity, etc. in forming this music.
