The inshad is a melodic vocal performance set in religious contexts,
most notably in the context of the hadra of Sufi brotherhoods.
Dhikr or "remembrance" (of Allah) refers to rhythmic chanting of the names of Allah.
Zikr and Inshad can be finding in the context of public celebrations,
such as saints' festivals (the mulid), the Prophet's birthday and celebrations of rites of passage,
such as memorials, circumcisions and, in Upper Egypt, weddings.
These draw a wide range of participants, both men and women,
and comprise a mix of adherents of particular Sufi brotherhoods,
as well as a more general public coming for the ecstatic emotional and spiritual experience.
Tickets price: 30 L.E per person
20 L.E per person for families.
Doors open at 8:30pm.
