  • August at Riverside: Mariam Sawires, Disco Misr, Dina El Wedidi & More!


    Sitting pretty towards the northern tip of Zamalek along the banks of the Nile, Riverside has become one of the city’s most popular high-end venues. When it comes to food, regulars love it and the eclectic choice of live entertainment offers a little bit of something for everyone.

    August is a particularly special month, though, with Riverside set to host a particularly special event on Thursday 3rd – a night that will see Egyptian-Australian musician, Mariam Sawires, take to the stage.


    With music and art very much running through her veins, Sawires was always going to be a musician; born into a free-spirited family of artists and musicians, she began composing music at the tender age of 8 and has since taken her unique fusion of North African influenced jazz and nu-soul all across the world – everywhere from France, Germany and Denmark, to USA, Colombia, Uganda and Japan, where she lived and worked for almost a year.

    Her gig in Egypt comes in the run-up to a new record; five-track EP, AHNUMA, is scheduled to be released on August 19 and will be available on iTunes, Spotify and more. You can get a sneak preview of it on Sawires’ SoundCloud page.

    These huge events come amidst several other tasty events at Riverside, Oldies Night with Khaled Essam , 80′s & 90′s with DJ Ghandokly,  Salsa Night and gigs from the likes of Ahmed Harfoush, Riverside Bel3arby with Disco Misr , Dina El Wedidi & Salalem. A busy month indeed.
