Heave a sigh of relief because, YES, IT IS ALMOST THE WEEKEND. With summer inching ever-closer, many Cairenes are scrambling away to warmer and wetter climates – if you, like us, are sticking around in Cairo, Cairo’s bars and clubs have a solid weekend coming up to help you to party (and drink) your weekday-woes away. From Ghetto SupaFly w/ Mya, to the Italian Jazzyfunk duo at Riverside, to an entirely female DJ line-up at CJC, we’ve got a great weekend coming your way.
SUPAFLY PRESENTS: GHETTO SUPAFLY FT. MYA @ THE TEMPLE
From the brains that brought Coolio to Cairo, comes Ghetto Superstar, Mya, featuring American, DJ Music Rocka, Amr Hosny (The Godfather), and local favourite, DJ Moneim.
RIVERDEEP FT.JAZZYFUNK + MOHASSEB @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
Riverside kicks off a pretty heavy weekend featuring Italian duo, Jazzyfunk, and Mohasseb for weekend house staple, Riverdeep.
HOUSE OBSESSION: LADIES EDITION @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
It’s all about the ladies this Friday at CJC – with House Obsession featuring certified-babes and musical wizards, Akladios, Kidmims, and Mayounah to have you dancing like an idiot the whole night long.
CAIRO SHAKERS @ VENT
The third ever Cairo Shakers event, The Caliente Session will bring back the man behind it all, Hicham, and situate him squarely behind the decks to provide the night’s entertainment in the form of white-hot beats to get you, Cairo, shaking. (see what we did there?)
AFRICAN NIGHT @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
Reclaim and be proud of your African roots this Saturday at Cairo Jazz Club, where Us We Lazq will deliver a typically high-energy, high-octane world-music fusion performance, and where Hawidro (meaning ‘the return’ in Nubian) will have you swaying to their truly boundless sound.
