Cairo Steps merges and combines traditional Egyptian and oriental rhythms with modern jazz improvisation, classical music and contemporary sounds. Our music is influenced by spiritual ethnic notes as well as European music traditions, and alternates between strong unison rhythms, virtuoso solos and meditative soundscapes. The result is a unique music style and an exciting blend of various cultures. The ensemble has played numerous concerts in Egypt, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, Italy and Germany with musicians and artists from around the world performing in international festivals and live TV shows. In 2018, Cairo Steps was given the “German Jazz Gold Award” for their album “Flying Carpet” together with Quadro Nuevo.
Cairo Steps seeks to achieve the vision of crossing cultural, political and religious borders and building bridges between occident and orient
