Cairo Jazz Station

At the crossroads between jazz and contemporary Middle Eastern music

An educational and artistic collaboration
between the Aix-en-Provence Festival and Makan Egyptian Center for Culture and Arts
with the support of the Institut Français in Cairo

Meeting up in Cairo to search for a new, common musical identity.

Such is the aim of this group of young artists from the world of oral and improvised music in Europe and the Middle East. A unique new blend of timbres, born of the need to bridge the distance between the shores and sonic worlds of a rapidly changing area.
