  • Ghalia Benali @ the Music Tent

    2015 has been a huge year for Cairo's premiere concert space, the Music Tent. The New Cairo venue has upped the ante this year, with some of Egypt and the Middle East's biggest artists - including Cairokee, Mashrou3 Leila, HOH and Yasmine Hamdan - having graced the stage. The latest gig at the Music Tent came courtesy of Tunisian songstress, Ghalia Benali - but this was no normal concert. Ditching her trademark Oriental-jazz and world music inclinations, Benali paid tribute to Om Kolthoum in the grandest of ways, performing the best songs from the legend that the Arab world calls Kawkab El Sharq.
