  • Hi folks!

    Welcome to a new lesson in the Around The World series!

    Our next stop is a land of Pharaohs - Egypt.

    Egyptian music has been an integral part of Egyptian culture since ancient times. The earliest material and representational evidence of Egyptian musical instruments dates to the Predyanstic period, but the evidence is more securely attested in the Old Kingdom when harps, flutes and double clarinets were played. Percussion instruments, lyres and lutes were added to orchestras by the Middle Kingdom. Cymbals frequently accompanied music and dance, much as they still do in Egypt today. Egyptian folk music, including the traditional Sufi zikr rituals, are the closest contemporary music genre to ancient Egyptian music, having preserved many of its features, rhythms and instruments.

    Bedouin, Nubian, Coptic, Saidi music are just a small parts of this mysterious folklore and still not enough represented to the Western hemisphere.
