Mohamed Mounir is set to take the stage along with Adel Tawil at a festival in Germany meant to welcome refugees.
Very few things make our hearts warm; puppies, charity for children, and the occasional romantic gesture – that sort of thing. We tend to take note of events aimed at honouring the plight of others, especially today where media is marred by a torrent of negative news; so it's great to see events with a special focus on refugees, and it makes us even prouder when fellow Egyptians are contributing to the efforts!
Our very own beloved Mohamed Mounir flew to Germany on Tuesday to participate in the upcoming Weir Wirkt Festival on the 6th of May. The famous artist, known for his Arabic, Nubian, Jazz, Blues, and Reggae music, will be accompanied on stage by German singer Adel Tawil and his Ich + Ich band; all are set to perform on Friday at the Gerry Weber Stadium in Halle/Westfalen.
In perfect cahoot, the German churches such as the Evangelical Church in the Rhineland, the Evangelical Church of Westphalia, and the Church of Lippe, launched The Wider Outlook Works (Weir Wirkt) campaign and festival. The festival is meant to attract participants from all over to world to organise activities, informative panels, workshops aimed at entertaining adults and children, as well as being an event aimed at welcoming refugees.
The festival is due to last for two days, from the 6th to 8th of May. According to the Cairo Post, Mounir will then be heading to the city of sun and art, Madrid, for another concert.
