Whenever you come to Egypt make sure you enjoy this visit and show. Folkloric and artistic indeed. Whenever I had visiting friends I have taken them to this place and none of them regretted it; on the contrary. Highly recommended.

Hey, if you are in cairo and want to attend an event show of tanoura and listen to oriental music. Then i recommend you this place. It is very cheap, don't take the private tours, just ask a local friend to go with you Enjoy
