These Ramadan nights come with a flair of Spanish-flavoured art while staying true to traditional Egyptian heritage at sites throughout El Moez Street.
The Cervantes Institute, Cairo’s only Spanish Cultural Center, is launching their very own Ramadan Nights—but these aren’t your classic go-stuff-your-face-with-foul-and-ta3mya nights. These Ramadan nights come with a flair of Spanish-flavoured art while staying true to traditional Egyptian heritage. They’re launching a series of cultural events, in cooperation with the Cultural Development Fund, across many of Cairo’s beloved historical sites.
The first event is scheduled to take place on Thursday, April 29th at Bayt Al-Suhaymi, tucked away in the heart of Old Islamic Cairo. El Moez Street is always brimming with the festive spirit of Ramadan and is a real marvel to see around this time of year, and with these nights, you will be able to bask in the festivities with a special Spanish and Latin American Poetry performance followed by a dazzling El Tanbura troupe show from Port Said.
All throughout the week, you can pop in for more shows at Bayt Al-Suhaymi including an evening with Sudanese folk singer Asia Madani or a concert with Andromeda, an Egyptian Pink Floyd tribute project. The iconic Beshtak Palace will be the site of the last show and it’ll be a special treat with a lovely performance from Tablet El Sitt Troupe, a band composed of young female tabla players.
The events will pass through many breathtaking, historically-rich locations across Cairo this Ramadan until May 6th.
