Rumour has it, that after El Dor El Awal shot to fame, the group considered renaming themselves Penthouse, but decided to stay humble on the First Floor...
It’s not every day that you hear about a band that began when a violinist and a bassist got together for a jamming session. But that’s exactly how El Dor El Awal got started. When Mohamed Samy and Ahmed Omar discovered how brilliant their strings sounded together, they decided it was time to borrow a couple Wust El Balad boys, Bob and Mizo, to bring some sweet Arabian beats into the mix. Fady Badr and his keyboard quickly came on board, and Nour Ashour brought his saxophone, while Maissam Jalal joined with his flute, because no good jazz band can be without a bit of blow.
The dynamic group have graced the stage of CJC more times than we can count, but that doesn’t stop us from getting there as fast as we can whenever we hear they’re playing. So we highly suggest you book your spot now here.
