Amir ELSaffar is coming back to Egypt to perform a solo concert in D-CAF's Sixth edition.

Amir ElSafar has distinguished himself with a mastery of diverse musical traditions and a singular approach to combining Middle Eastern musical languages with jazz and other styles of contemporary music. 
He is an expert trumpeter with a classical background, conversant not only in the language of contemporary jazz, but has created techniques to play microtones and ornaments idiomatic to Arabic music that are not typically heard on the trumpet.
ElSafar is an important voice in an age of cross-cultural music making.

This Performance is in collaboration with the American Embassy in Cairo
