The music ensemble Taksir Sharqi was formed towards the end of 2017 at the Egyptian Center for Culture and Arts–Makan, which has embraced and fully supported its endeavors. Taksir Sharqi presents works combining Egyptian folkloric music, such as zar and mawwal, with contemporary music. These combinations blend sounds new to the listener’s ear, creating unique sonic fusions distinct from all other musical experiments in the contemporary arts scene.
