Musical Entertainment

Recently, some members wondered how come we who are here do not share on the forum, what goes on in Luxor.

Some years on Ramadan nights, I have enjoyed concerts on Abu el Hagag Square by local musicians in a lovely atmosphere. Tomorrow is expected by some of the performing artists to be the first of three days with this wonderful entertainment, but it is far too early to inform a potential audience, let alone the musicians, so we'll see. As soon as they know when to play, my favorite musicians will tell me.

I have forgotten the name of the garden on the corner of Medina and St. Joseph Street, where there used to be an "Arosa" carrousel. Starting tonight 10:30, inshallah, every night this week, music will be played there - oud, violin, song and percussion. This will probably attract a nice audience of local families.

I enjoyed some lovely classic Egyptian music to the smell of green grass under the yellow full moon. There will be more Ramadan nights like this at Medina until Friday night, inshallah, from 10 PM.

They have built a stage on Abu el Hagag and I know some traditional musicians who say that they will play there tonight. It should go on for at least three nights, inshallah.

As always, I'm in the wrong place to experience a bit of Luxor local musical culture.

There will be different kinds of entertainment each Ramadan night, inshallah, at both venues.

There are parties every night, people going to and coming from Mecca,
it's pretty mad locally also over the dark side this month.
But the 'silver lining is, that they sleep all day.... 8)
