At the crossroads between jazz and contemporary Middle Eastern music »Cairo Jazz station« was born out of an educational and artistic collaboration between the Aix-en-Provence Festival and the Makan Egyptian Center for Culture and Arts.
“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. After the ensemble has been in invited in 2017, it will perform again at the “Frühling”.
