Before the ‘Arab Spring,’ Egypt was a popular travel destination and home to some of the most iconic artists in the Middle East, such as Oum Kalthoum and Abdel Halem Hafiz.
Amid the terrible civil strife a new scene is rising, spearheaded by bands like Cairokee – the unofficial soundtrack to the rebellion – and Maii Waleed with her entrancing electronic.
We’ll also look at some of today’s iconic greats like “The King” Mohamed Mounier, and the Ricky Martin of the Middle East Amr Diab.
