“Mazzika X El Sat7”, is a monthly musical night that will be held at Darb 1718’s roof, aka El Sat7. Throughout the night, we present you a musical journey that will make your soul travel into a surreal world to help you unplug in a cozy warm atmosphere with limited number of audience.

Band members:

Omar Ashour (Classical Guitar):
Starting in his early teenage years, Ashour went on to study music more seriously in Dalhousie University in a small town called Halifax, Nova Scotia in the Atlantic Ocean. He dove right into teaching after leaving the comfortable grounds of academia, and met a lot of interesting folks along the way. A decade and a half, and a lot of riffs later, the lone minstrel finds himself in Cairo, willing to give it all another whirl.

César Mora (Classical Guitar)
Was born in Caracas, Venezuela on July 18th 1989. He began studying popular guitar at the age of 14 under maestro José Gamboa. One year later he entered the Juan Manuel Olivares Conservatory where he studied classical guitar under maestro Efrén Suárez. In 2008 César got accepted at The National University of Arts (UNEARTE), where he earned a Bachelor degree of Music in 2013 and Majored in Classical Guitar under the guidance of Maestro Luis Zea.

Special Guest - Hassan Hosny (Cello Player):
