NEW YEAR”S EVE AT DRM
Straight from Aswan Egypt, Super Band ” The Musicians Of The Nile” will perform on New Year’s Eve followed by an an electrifying countdown with Samba Dancers and DJ.
The Musicians of the Nile:
Known for their collaboration with Peter Gabriel in “The Last Tempation of Christ” and with Tony Gatlif in “Latcho Drom”, and celebrated by Keith Jarett and Sun Ra as the masters of Middle Eastern Gipsy music, The Musicians of the Nile are the founding fathers of the World Music scene.
Originating from Upper Egypt, wearing heavy, dark galabiyas (djellabas), the Musicians of the Nile have been touring throughout Europe for about 3 decades, carried by festivals and musical celebrations. More than a simple ethnical encounter, their shows are a real gust of spontaneity phrased by the rolling percussions.
Like the old bards of long ago, village musicians and nomads of the traditional feasts, the Musicians of the Nile cross spaces and cultures on donkey-back or by jet.
The virtuosos of the rabbabah –a two-stringed instrument made of horsehair, coconut and Nile fish skins – overwhelm our senses and emotions in a wave of trills.
The Musicians of the Nile are a symbol. They were the first “Arabic music” group to win notoriety in 1975, before the apparition of the Arab-oriental style and of the raï. As invincible and iconic as their pyramids, the group stands up to the time and survives trends.
